研究表明, 亲子依恋对青少年问题性网络使用(PIU)具有重要影响, 但是亲子依恋起作用的中介和调节机制少有研究涉及。在发展系统理论及依恋理论的基本框架下, 本研究基于“社会发展模型/初级社会化理论”和“个体—环境交互作用观”, 构建一个有调节的中介模型, 同时考察家庭因素(亲子依恋)、同伴因素(越轨同伴交往)和个体因素(意志控制)对青少年PIU的影响及其作用机制。以2758名初中生为被试(平均年龄13.53岁, SD = 1.06), 让其自我报告亲子依恋、越轨同伴交往、意志控制和PIU的情况。多元回归分析表明:(1)在控制了性别、年龄、社会经济地位后, 亲子依恋对PIU具有负向预测作用。(2)亲子依恋通过越轨同伴交往的中介作用间接影响PIU。(3)该间接效应受到意志控制的调节。相对于意志控制水平高的青少年, 间接效应对于意志控制水平低的青少年更显著。研究结果有利于从发展系统理论不同亚系统及其相互作用的视角理解亲子关系“如何”及“何时”影响青少年PIU。青少年PIU的预防干预不仅要重视家庭因素、同伴因素和个体因素的单独影响, 更要重视这些因素的联合作用。

Problematic Internet use (PIU) and its detrimental effects on adolescents’ adjustment has become a hot topic of research in developmental psychology. Among many factors influencing adolescent PIU, the role of parent-child attachment has increasingly received attention of both practitioners and researchers over the past few years. There is substantial literature documenting that parent-child attachment has an important influence on adolescent PIU, but little is known about the mediating and moderating mechanisms underlying this relation. Under the basic framework of development system theories and attachment theory, the present study constructed a moderated mediation model based on the social development model and the organism-environment interaction model to examine the effect of family factors (parent-child attachment), peer factors (deviant peer affiliation) and individual factors (effortful control) on PIU and the underling mechanisms. Specifically, the present study examined whether parental attachment would be indirectly related to adolescent PIU through deviant peer affiliation, and whether this indirect association would be moderated by adolescent effortful control. This integrated model can address questions about both mediation and moderation in one model which was helpful to answer the issues such as “what works for whom”, and provide valuable information for early identification and prevention that cannot be obtained by separately testing the two questions. A total of 2758 junior high school students (mean age = 13.53 years, SD = 1.06) participated in this study. Adolescents’ perceived attachment to their parents was measured by the subscale of parental attachment adapted from the short form of Inventory of Parent and Peer Attachment (IPPA). Adolescent affiliation with deviant peers was assessed with deviant peer affiliation questionnaire. The short form of Early Adolescent Temperament Questionnaire-Revised was used to assess effortful control. Adolescent PIU was assessed with questionnaire for screening of PIU. All the measures have good reliability and validity. Multiple regression analysis showed that: (1) After controlling for gender, age, and socioeconomic status, the parent-child attachment has a negative effect on adolescent PIU. (2) The negative association between parent-child attachment and adolescent PIU was mediated by deviant peer affiliation. (3) The mediating effect of deviant peer affiliation was moderated by effortful control. The indirect effect was stronger for adolescents with low self-control than for those with high self-control. These findings contribute to our understanding of how and when parent-child attachment impacts adolescent PIU from different subsystems of development system theories. On the one hand, peer relationships relative to the parent-child attachment, may be a stronger social control factors in a way that parents and educators should be actively concern about whether the child was associated with deviant peers, and give reasonable guidance to help solve their confusion encountered in peer interactions. On the other hand, more attentions should be paid to the low self-control individuals (especially improve their parent-child attachment condition) and low parent-child attachment individuals (especially improve their self-control abilities). Last but not the least, the prevention and interventions for adolescent PIU should not only pay attention to the effect of family factors, peer factors (especially deviant peer affiliation) and individual factors (especially self-control), but also to the combined influence of those factors.
