Abstract

The influence of ICT in family functioning is a thrust area to study in which the adoption and changes in family activities are growing every day on par with ICT development. Among the models dealing with the subject, Hertlein's multitheoretical model is the one which contains the combination of factors from three different ICT and family-based theories. There is no measurement items found for this model. So, this research developed the measurement items for all the factors in model. Exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis was done to validate the model. This research also understood the importance of family communication through literature and added that as a sub-factor in the process changes factor and fit well with the existing model. This proves that family communication is one of the major contributor of family process.
