Abstract

Problematic Internet Use (PIU) is a disorder that involves Internet use and has the potential to happen to adolescents in the current digital age. As PIU predictors, parent attachment is one of the variables often studied by many researchers. However, in the development of technology where attachment between parents and children can be created through sophisticated devices, it is necessary to review whether the lack of parent attachments still has a relevant relationship with PIU. The aims of this literature review is to provide information about the relationship between parent attachment and adolescents’ problematic internet use in the year of 2015 to 2019. A total of 72,275 participants from various countries were involved in the study, which was summarized in 25 articles. Literature search uses the Google Scholar database with several publishers, such as science direct and others. The method of selecting scientific articles is in accordance with the screening criteria preferred reporting items for systematic reviews and meta-analyzes (PRISMA). Results show that lack of parent attachment is still the most influential variable on PIU, even though technology has helped parents to create attachment with their children. Interventions with a persuasive approach from parents to children directly become the most effective choice to help adolescents with PIU.
