Family perspectives on video game regulation and conflict management in Norway

The study examines family contexts surrounding video gaming among youth in Norway. The study especially focuses if regulation of video gaming is negotiated within families. A key question is how computer games may conflict with or support social relationships, everyday routines and obligations and how parents respond to and regulate gaming.  We will explore this complexity from a minority/immigrant familiy perspective but also learn from how this is manifested within ethnic Norwegian family situations. Qualitative methods shall be used in the study.
