There are several paradigms that have been used to investigate risk-taking, such as the Balloon Analog Risk Task (BART) ( Lejuez et al., 2002 ), Bechara’s gambling task (Iowa Gambling Task

Not all risk-taking is created equal: some risks are taken under a clear and rational frame of mind, while others are made in a less planful fashion ( Helfinstein et al., 2014 ). A major issue with spontaneous risk-taking

problematic risk-taking behaviors is challenging to measure given the lack of verified assessment tools and so estimates typically vary widely, ranging from 5.6% to 9.6% for problematic cybersex ( Wéry & Billieux, 2017 ), and from 1% to 15% for gaming disorder
The present study focuses on the relationship between parental bonding
and adolescents' risk-takingbehavior. We will
show that parental love is predictive of several direct and indirect forms of
adolescents' risk taking. Subjects who had received more parental love during
childhood were lesslikely to get in dangerous situations, less likely to get
injured, and less likely to apply to physical violence for solving conflicts,
compared to those with less parental love. They smoked less frequently,
consumed less alcohol and used drugs much seldom. These findings were
interpreted on an evolutionary framework based on Belsky et al.'s theory.
Violence, risk-taking, and noncompliance are considered as ultimate means of
acquiring resources for those who loose less than their more beloved peers. A
possible alternative explanation is discussed.
