The article begins with the introduction of a model that intends to capture the problems resulting from excessive computer and internet use by adoles-cents. The model contains three perspectives: the scientific-objective per-spective, the subjective perspective of parents and the subjective perspec-tive of adolescents. The data basis for this is a representative survey of 1744 adolescents in Germany (aged 14 to 17) including one parent per adoles-cent. In addition, the article uses a logistic regression to investigate if risk-factors like gender, social state, emotional family environment and amount of adolescent's internet use might enhance the probability of being part of the most problematic sub-group.
