By comparative study on the network-dependent group and the control group, to analyze certain effective factors, such as personality, parenting style, coping style, mental health of the network-dependence behavior among university students. The results showed that: the network-dependent group marked more mental health problems than the control group. Compared with the normal group, the former group's parents often refused and deny their children and punish them severely; their personality characteristics are inclined to solitude, introverted and their emotion are difficult to control; and on the coping style, the network-dependent group is inclined to take an immature, passive method of response.
