An Analysis of the Structural Relationship Between Variables Related to Childhood Media Device Addiction : A Longitudinal Mediation Analysis Using Multivariate Latent Growth Curve Modeling 

Junghye Sung and Choonkyung Kim


The purpose of this study was to analyze the longitudinal mediation effects of mothers' depression and controlled parenting on the relationship between early childhood mothers' negative life events and childhood media device addiction. To analyze the relationship between early childhood mothers’ negative life events and childhood media device addiction, multivariate latent growth curve modeling was used. This study used data from the fourth, fifth, sixth, and tenth waves of the Panel Study on Korean Children.

The results of multivariate latent growth curve modeling revealed that the initial value and the rate of change in mothers' depression and controlled parenting had a significant longitudinal mediating effect on the relationship between early childhood mothers' negative life events and childhood media device addiction. The results of this study suggest the necessity of a family support program and related research to reduce childrens' media device addiction by examining the negative effects of mothers' negative life events experience on children.


Keywords: negative life events, depression, controlled parenting, media device addiction, multivariate latent growth curve modeling
