Abstract: This thesis examined parental mediation of video gaming in Singapore. Video gaming has become a popular online activity among the young in Singapore. Moreover, its evolution has raised concerns about its negative effects on children, and has also placed tremendous strain on parents? efforts to monitor and manage their children?s usage. However, parental mediation theory, with its roots in television studies, has not adequately accommodated the challenges of this new media platform; this has resulted in descriptive and explanatory limitations of the theory. Its contradictory claims of effectiveness have also questioned the theory?s philosophical foundations. As such, this thesis seeks to address these limitations.
