With the global spread of the Covid-19 virus, many countries started quarantine to control the spread of the disease, and online communication played a more serious role in people's daily activities.


To identify the living conditions during quarantine for teenagers under the theory of emotional neuroscience, we investigated the factors of reducing the vulnerability of teenagers to internet addiction. For this purpose, general home conditions, communication, family activities, and parental mental health were examined among adolescents with ADHD who were known to be more at risk of Internet addiction.


Among the clients of Tehran Institute of Psychiatry in the fall of 1400, 55 teenagers (11-19 years old) with the diagnosis of hyperactivity/concentration deficit were treated, sampling and validity of diagnosis with the Connors parent test (1978) checked. The basic family information and questionnaires, Internet addiction Young (1998) and family activities (2008) taken from HBSC by the adolescent and Goldenberg mental health questionnaire (1979) It was completed by parents and the results were analyzed using T-test and Pearson correlation.


The correlation of internet addiction was estimated as -0.528 with family activities, 0.412 with the mother's mental health, and 0.332 with the father's mental health. Other components, such as the number of children or siblings with close age (under 5 years apart), income, home status, and age of parents, did not statistically differentiate between the two groups with and without Internet addiction.


The inclusion of collective activities with family members can be a suitable alternative to locked interactions in the Corona quarantine.
