It focuses on three themes of the old parents,which include mental dependence, trepidation of being old,and subjective well being. Tested children's influence in three aspects: the number of children, family structures and whether living with children. The study found that although children still plays a certain role in spiritual solace of the old, but their effect on spiritual solace of their parents is weakening. Whether have children or not has no significant correlation with spiritual solace. Differences between son and daughter in relation to the old 's spiritual solace are observed. The old who have daughters are more possible to get high level of subjective well being than who only have sons. Meanwhile, the old would more like to rely on their children in mental if living with children and mostly because of the intimate relationship shaping in a long term living together.
