The purpose of this study is to investigate longitudinal changes of mother-child interaction behavior and the relationship with mother’s smartphone addiction tendency in early childhood. Data of 124 mother-child (63 males, 61 females) from Seoul and Gyeonggi province in South Korea were analyzed through latent growth curve modeling. Mother’s smartphone addiction tendency and mother-child behavior were measured using 3-wave method. In this study, maternal behaviors (responsiveness, negativity, intrusiveness) were observed during the mother-infant free play interaction and were coded with the Caregiver-Child Affect, Responsiveness, and Engagement Scale (C-CARES). The results of the analysis demonstrated that for influence factors, mother’s smartphone addiction tendency was statistically significant. The research findings showed that mothers who had a high level of smartphone addiction tendency also had a steep decrease in their responsiveness, Also, mothers who had a high level of smartphone addiction tendency also had a steep increase in negativeness. This study provides empirical findings that caregiver’s smartphone usages were related with mother-child interaction.
