This research examines the performance of parents in guiding their children’s usage of the internet in the village of Majalengka Regency, West Java, Indonesia. How did the parents control their children’s usage of the internet and how did their children react to the questions being answered in this research. The research used a qualitative approach to get the natural settings in which there are many behaviours and events which occur. This research also used a communicative theory of interactionism, because the theory could lead the researchers to an understanding of the structure, regulation and parental procedures that could have a significant impact on family education. This research found that to perform parents' functions as a guide, the parents always make themselves available for their children. So, the parents collect the children's aspirations and accommodate them and follow up the aspirations. And, also, to address children's complaints, parents give a moral and psychological explanation to the children. This was one of the many solutions to address children addiction to the gadgets.
