Otherwise, devices also offer other things, such as games and entertainment that can lead to addiction. Meanwhile, the communication between parents and children often have problems that affect loosening the relationship between them. The purposes of this article are to determine the negative impact of device addiction to the children, how are the forms of interactive communication between parents and children exemplified by the Quran, and how can the interactive communication be an effort to save children from device addiction. The negative impacts of device addiction are such as decreased concentration, lack of emotional control, and health disorder. Interactive communication between parents and children in the Quran such as the story of Prophet Abraham who discussed and listened to the opinion of Ismael, Prophet Zakariya who used to be critical and inquisitive about unusual phenomena experienced by Maryam, Lukman Al Hakim showed a good way in advising the child, and Nuh gave an example of how to reprimand Kan'an.
