The purpose of the present study was to see whether perception of parents and self-presentation can predict Internet Addiction.  This study examined the perception of parents by an individual in the dimensions of warmth, involvement and autonomy support for father and mother and self-presentation in the dimensions of ability- and attempt-to-act among a sample of 142 participants (male (68) and female (74)), age ranging from 18 to 32 years.  Results indicated that overall, warmth, involvement and autonomy support of both father and mother, respectively and ability- and attempt-to-act do contribute significantly for predicting Internet Addiction.  However, specifically involvement of father correlates negatively to Internet addiction and warmth of father and attempt-to-act in self-presentation correlates positively to Internet Addiction.
