Abstract


The objective of this study is to determine the mobile addiction and social media addiction level of parents and their attitudes towards usage of technology. The study has a descriptive and correlational model pattern which is a quantitative re-search method. The sample of the study consisted of 200 pre-school student par-ents. In order to collect the data, “Mobile Addiction Scale”, “Social Media Addic-tion Scale” and “Parent Attitude towards Technology Usage Scale” were used and the descriptive statistics of the scale scores and the relational findings be-tween the scale scores were included. Accordingly, statistically significant and positive correlations were found between the scores of parents' subscales in the 'Parental Attitude Scale for Technology Usage and 'Mobile Addiction Scale'. It is hoped that the study will shed light on other researchers in terms of their attitudes towards mobile and social media addiction levels and usage of technology.
