This study examined the relationships among smartphone addiction, parenting attitudes and resilience to identify the relevant factors affecting smartphone addiction. Data were collected from a total of 220 middle school students responding to questionnaires in G city and analyzed using descriptive statistics, independent t-test, ANOVA, test, Pearson coefficient correlation, and multiple regression. The results showed that the parenting attitude and resilience were negatively correlated with smartphone addiction. The significant factors affecting smartphone addiction were gender, the time of smartphone usage, parenting attitudes, and resilience. These variables explained 21.9% of smartphone addiction and the highest factor was the parenting attitudes, followed by gender, time of smartphone usage, and resilience. This study indicated that it is important to develop a program to ensure adolescents positively perceive parenting attitudes and increase their resilience to decrease the incidence of smartphone addiction.
