Abstract—With the spread of Internet, poor children and youth have more opportunities to access the Internet and engage in exchanging and obtaining information. Although the use of the Internet can help reduce the education gap between poor and underprivileged children, the use of the Internet can easily lead to Internet addiction. Family intervention and parental discipline have a very significant inhibitory effect on adolescent Internet addiction and related criminal behaviors. The purpose of the paper is to examine poor and vulnerable children with Internet usage behavior, family interaction and runaway behavior correlation. The sample of the study consisted of 3153 children and youths by Taiwan Database of Children and Youth in Poverty (TDCYP). The results revealed that Internet use behavior among poor children is significantly associated with runaway behavior and more frequent arguing with family or elders will significantly increase the chances of poor children and youths leaving their homes.

Index Terms—Children, runaway, family interaction, internet usage behavior.
