Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D)
Date of Award
The purpose of this study was to investigate whether specific factors contributed to an increase in parental self-efficacy setting screen time limitations among adolescents. More specifically, the goals were to examine which factors played a role in increasing parental self-efficacy in setting screen time limitations with adolescents. An online survey with demographic questions and the Parenting Scale was used to address the following research question: Do gender, education, and elements from The Parenting Scale (laxness, overreactivity, and verbosity) predict parental self-efficacy in setting screen time limitations among adolescents? The hypothesis includes the following: H1o = There is no statistical significance between independent variables of interest (e.g., PS and demographic questionnaire) and the binary criterion. H11 = There is a statistical significance between independent variables of interest (PS and demographic questionnaire) and the binary criterion. While there were no statistically significant findings, this study adds to the literature on parental self-efficacy in setting screen time limits with adolescents.
