Background and Purpose: Several studies indicate that the socioeconomic status of parents and the prevalence of Internet and cyberspace use have reduced children's tendency to mobility and physical activity; accordingly, the present study was conducted to investigate the relationship between Internet use and socioeconomic status of parents and the exercise tendency of primary school students.
Method: The present study was descriptive-correlational study. 230 students were selected by cluster sampling from among the fourth to sixth grade students of Rasht city in the academic year 2019-2020. Internet Addiction Test (Kimberly Young, 1998), Socio-Economic Status Questionnaire (Ghodratnam, 2013), and Exercise Tendency Questionnaire (Naji, 2010) were used to collect the data. Pearson correlation coefficient and multiple regression analysis were used to analyze the data.
Results: Results of multiple regression analysis showed that the income and education level of parents predicted 0.013 and 0.027 of the variance of the children's exercise tendency, respectively (p <0.05). The results of this study also showed that there is no significant relationship between the exercise tendency and addiction to cyberspace.
Conclusion: Based on the findings, it can be concluded that the socioeconomic status of parents can have direct and indirect impact on the exercise tendency level and physical activity of children.
Keywords: Internet addiction, exercise tendency, socioeconomic status, primary school students
