The aim of the study is to examine whether gadget addiction influences adolescent’s family functioning and its dimensions. Data were collected from 226 adolescents aged 12-18 years old. We used Smartphone Addiction Scale Short Version (SAS-SV) developed by Kwon et al. (2013) to measure gadget addiction and Family Assessment Device (FAD) developed by Epstein et al. (1983) to measure family functioning. The results showed a negative effect of gadget addiction on family functioning (F(1,224)= 30,796, p<0,001 (1-tailed), R2= 0,121). Results from MANOVA statistics showed that there is significant differences of the six family functioning dimensions between adolescents with high and low-risk gadget addiction (F(7,218)= 4,852, p<0,01 (1-tailed); Wilks’ ᴧ= 0,865, partial Ƞ2= 0,135), significant at p= 0,000-0,006). Thus, we found the support that gadget addiction influences family functioning negatively and its implications are discussed.
