To study the influence of family parenting style and peer relationship on junior high school students' prosocial behavior. Methods: The modified prosocial behavior scale, peer acceptance dimension of peer relationship scale and family parenting style scale were used to investigate 2510 junior high school students from 3 schools in Jiangsu province. Findings: (1) Positive parenting style (r= 0.242,P <0.01) and peer relationship (r=0.261,P <0.01) had significant positive effects on prosocial behavior, and positive parenting style (r= 0.056,P<0.05) had significant positive effects on peer relationship. (2) Negative parenting style had significant negative effects on peer relationship (r=-0.452,P <0.01) and prosocial behavior (r=-0.398,P <0.01). (3) Family parenting style not only directly affects the prosocial behavior of junior high school students, but also affects the prosocial behavior through the mediating role of peer relationship. Conclusion: Peer relationship plays a partial mediating role in the relationship between family parenting style and junior high school students' prosocial behavior.
