||This study examined the antecedents and consequences of parental mediation in their children’s Internet use. Data were collected from 327 dyads of Taiwanese parents and their teenage children. “Time restriction” and “evaluation” were found to be two major strategies used by parents. The child’s age and Internet skills and the parent’s perceptions on the negative effects of the Internet can significantly predict parental mediation. It was also found that parents overestimate the degree to which
they mediate their children’s Internet use. In addition, the expectation that parental mediation strategies reduce the risks teenage children encounter online was not supported. The theoretical and methodological implications
for future research are discussed.
