Today, Social networks have provided their users with new chance of connecting with people with easy and instant communication tools. Despite their benefits, they may harm their users in different ways. In present study, the relationship between harmful use of these social media by mothers and their marital satisfaction, maternal bond with children as well as behavioral disorders of their children was investigated. For this purpose, 323 mothers with pre-school children were selected by convenience sampling. Data was collected using prepared Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire (SDQ), Relationship Assessment Scale (RAS) and Child-Parent Relationship Scale.The findings of the research showed that harmful use of SN has negative and meaningful relationship with marital satisfaction. Besides, there is a negative and significant relationship between use of SN and mother-child relationship. On the other hand, marital satisfaction has a direct and significant relationship with mother-child relationship and mother-child relationship has a negative and significant relationship with children's behavioral disorders. No significant relationship was found between use of SN and children's behavioral problems. According to results, harmful use of SN can reduce marital satisfaction, which leads to decrease in mother-child relationship quality and consequently behavioral disorders in children.
