During the coronavirus pandemic, Lebanese adolescents were required by the
government to self-isolate through quarantine for their own health and protection. This study aims to investigate the perceived effect this confinement could have on Lebanese adolescent’s perceived ability to self-regulate. Methods: Eight Lebanese participants (four females and four males) aged 13-15 years residing in North Lebanon who have quarantined for longer than 1 month in response to the COVID-19 pandemic were interviewed with questions inspired by the self-regulation questionnaire for adolescents. The data acquired from the interviews were coded and analyzed thematically for reoccurring themes and similarities. Results: Participants perceived that their self regulation was affected by quarantine, specifically in the domains of receiving input information and assessing progress. Various gender differences were shown in the data, specifically in the sectors of selfevaluation. In addition, many factors were revealed to be a potential influence on adolescent’s self-regulation during quarantine, such as self-image, family support, routine, external factors, and rewards and punishments. Conclusion: Adolescent’s perceived self regulation of their awareness to wrongdoings and assessment of progress were mostly affected during quarantine.
