Abstract
The current study looks into video game parenting among young children. Existing studies have looked into the parental mediation of video gaming: the rules and discussions. Drawing on Self-Determination Theory, the current study extended this approach to include the parenting style. Leveraging longitudinal parental self-report data (N=1546) about their young children (Mage=5.4), a cross-lagged structural model was used to explore relations between parental mediation, autonomy supportive and controlling parenting style, child oppositional defiance and parental perception of problematic (addictive) game use. Both a more controlling parenting style and negative parental perceptions of problematic gaming increased defiant child behavior one year later. Furthermore, more parental concern about problematic gaming decreased parenting efforts. Together, these findings indicate that for gaming, increased concern and increasingly controlling parenting have detrimental effects on young children’s behavior. This provides an argument for normalizing, accepting, and discussing gaming behavior in the family setting
