Abstract

Abstract: This research examined whether children’s perceptions of their parents’ behavior are related to their computer use, Internet use, videogame playing and cell phone use. The sample consisted of 515 children in Michigan, USA, who were about 12 years-old and either African American (33%) or Caucasian American. The only technology use related to perceptions of parent behavior was videogame playing. The more negativity perceived in parents’ behavior and the less monitoring perceived to occur, the greater the videogame playing. Implications for future research that examines the causal direction of relationships between perceptions of parents’ behavior and children’ technology use are discussed.
