Abstract: The present study analyzed long-term trends in parental mediation of adolescent television viewingand how this mediation related to changes in teenagers’ attachment to their parents. A Belgianpanel of early adolescents (n ¼ 883) and of middle adolescents (n ¼ 651) rated three times in threeconsecutive years how often their parents used restrictive mediation, instructive mediation, andsocial co-viewing to control their television viewing. The results showed that parental mediation iscommon during adolescence, even for twelfth graders. However, the latent growth curve analysesindicated that the use of each parental mediation strategy tends to decline throughout adolescence.In addition, parallel process latent growth curve models showed that the decreasing occurrence ofinstructive mediation and co-viewing is related to parental separation. In contrast, the decliningincidence of restrictive mediation during adolescence is not related to parental separation.
