  • The purpose of this study is to provide basic data that mother's smart phone overdependence prevention education are needed by confirming the relationship between mother' s smartphone overdependence and parent role intelligence. The research subjects were 220 mothers of 0-2 years old who are attending 15 day care centers in Cheong-ju, Chung-buk. The research tool used smartphone overdependence scale, and parent role intelligence scale. For the analysis of the study, frequency analysis, Pearson's Ratio correlation and regression analysis were performed. The results showed that mother's smartphone overdependence was negatively correlated with parental role intelligence and negatively correlated with developmental stimulation, parenting, support, and management. The multiple regression analysis showed that there was a significant negative effect on the smartphone overdependency, parent role intelligence, and sub factors. This suggests that smartphone overdependence prevention education for mother should be needed for nurturing of desirable infants.

  • Objectives: The purpose of this study is to investigate the effects on smartphone overdependence of out-of-school youths. Methods: This was a cross sectional study design using the out of school youth Panel Survey(2017). We conducted an empirical study consisting of 318 participants with using descriptive statistics, Pearson's correlation coefficients, hierarchical multiple regression analysis to identify factors influencing smartphone overdependence. Results: Smartphone overdependence correlated positively with depression and carrier barriers such as lack of career informations, career development anxiety and financial difficulties. The main factors of smartphone overdependence in adolescents out of school were depression (β = .22, p = .002), gender (β = .21, p <.001), future anxiety (β = .15, p = .0.0), subjective health status (β = .13, p = .028), smoking (β = .13, p = .032). Conclusion: Smartphone overdependence management programs for out-of-school youths should be included emotional and informational support to alleviate anxiety, fear of failing in one's career, as well as mental and psychological interventions to reduce level of depression.

  • The purpose of this study was to investigate the identified groups depend on the relationship of smartphone overdependence and adolescents' perception of smartphone overdependence itself. The study also explored gender positions in classified groups and the relationship between irrational perception of smartphone and positive emotion while smartphone usage. The participants to the study were 2,033 adolescents, aged between 10 and 19 from a smartphone overdependence survey of the National Information Society Agency. As a result of the qui-square analysis and MANOVA, four groups were classified depend on perception of smartphone overdependence and related smartphone overdependence behaviors. Second, gender did not show any differences in groups. Third, adolescents with lower perception in smartphone overdependence showed lower perception of smartphone usage compared to other adolescents in three groups. Fourth, adolescents with constructive perception in smartphone overdependence reported positive emotions. The results of this study suggest that it is necessary to understand adolescents' smartphone overdependence and look together with the irrational perception of smartphone.

  • Internet overdependence has become a public health concern in Korea. It is well known that family and community level efforts could alleviate possible harms from Internet use. However, little research exists regarding smartphone overdependence. This study examines factors affecting smartphone overdependence and, specifically, help-seeking for smartphone overdependence among Korean adolescents. The study is based on parental mediation theory and uses a help-seeking framework. The results indicate that preventative education provided by school and community increases the levels of awareness of both the possible harms from smartphone use and the option of accessing the mental health service, while it was not effective in preventing smartphone overdependence. Parental mediation was a protective factor for smartphone overdependence but was negatively associated with the intention to use the mental health service. In sum, behavioral problems related to smartphone use require multidimensional preventative efforts from both the family and the community. It is suggested that effective preventive education methods are developed for parents and adolescents.

  • This study examined the effects of smartphone usage types and excessive expectation for smartphone on adolescents' smartphone overdependence. It utilized the data of 3,454 adolescents (1,758 males and 1,696 females), aged between 13 and 19 from a smartphone overdependence survey of the National Information Society Agency. As a result of the hierarchical multiple regression analysis, age and household income had a negative effect on smartphone overdependence. Weekly smartphone usage time positively affected the serious consequences (sub-factor of smartphone overdependence). Among the different types of smartphone usage, information seeking, SNS, gaming, and the excessive expectation for smartphones had positive impact on smartphone overdependence. Smartphone usage for leisure seeking did not affect smartphone overdependence, but it negatively influenced serious consequences. Messenger use did not affect smartphone overdependence, but the use had a positive effect on salience, and a negative effect on serious consequences. The results of this study suggest that it is necessary to identify the types of smartphone use as well as the usage time to understand the smartphone dependence of adolescents. In addition, it seems necessary to recognize and correct the irrational excessive expectation for smartphone in order to prevent dependence and implement effective interventions.

  • The aim of this study was to examine the association between daily stress and smartphone overdependence among multicultural adolescents, focusing on the moderating roles of gender and age. This study performed a series of multiple linear regressions with a sample of 794 multicultural adolescents living with a foreign-born parent or parents from the 13th Korea Youth Risk Behavior Web-Based Survey. The main regression analysis showed that daily stress was associated with higher levels of smartphone overdependence among multicultural adolescents. In addition, interaction analyses showed that the association between daily stress and smartphone overdependence was more pronounced for male adolescents compared to female adolescents, and for middle school students compared to high school students. This study concluded with some suggestions to address smartphone overdependence among multicultural adolescents.

  • The purpose of this study was to identify the influencing factors on smartphone overdependence by examining the relationships between smartphone overdependence, self-determination, depression, self-esteem, and impulsivity in male and female college students. The self-reported questionnaires were administered to 263 students from two colleges. As results of multiple regression analysis, the factors affecting smartphone overdependence in male students were the perception of smartphone importance (${\beta}=.411$, p<.001), impulsivity (${\beta}=.204$, p=.007), and depression (${\beta}=.200$, p=.040). In female students, influencing factors were the perception of smartphone importance (${\beta}=.630$, p<.001) and impulsivity (${\beta}=.185$, p=.010). Based on the findings, a tailored smartphone overdependence prevention program is needed by controlling impulsivity and changing distorted perceptions of smartphone.

  • The purpose of this study was to find out the actual status of smartphone students' dependence on college students, and to identify the correlation between depression, self-efficacy and smartphone overdependence, and the role of self-efficacy in the relationship between depression and smartphone overdependencee. The main results of the survey and analysis of 1,177 four-year college students located in Gyeonggi area are as follows. First, the percentage of college students' smartphone overdependence was very high at 34.1%. Second, there was a significant difference in prevalence of depression between the smartphone overdependence group(18.7%) and the general user group(11%). Third, self-efficacy showed a negative correlation with smartphone overdependence. The smartphone overdependence group showed significantly lower score in self-efficacy and self-regulation efficacy, confidence, and task difficulty preference than the general user group. Fourth, self-efficacy worked as a mediating variable in the relationship between depression and smartphone overdependence. In other words, the effect of depression on smartphone overdependence tended to decrease as self-efficacy rose in the relationship. Finally, we discussed the development of programs to support career and psychological counseling of university students.
