Abstract: Filial piety has been formed in the process of interaction with parents. During child-rearing stage, parenting goals influence children’s filial piety through their autonomy tendencies, and infuential effect varies among different family models; during aged-parent stage, the intergenerational reciprocal cultures shape parent-child filial attitudes, including parental expectation and adult-child filial piety. Meanwhile, parent-child relationship adjusts the two influencing paths. More attention should be paid to the influence of reconstruction of family models and intergenerational reciprocal models on parent-child filial attitude, and intervention should be taken to improve children’s filial piety in China.

Key words: filial piety, family model, reciprocity, parent-child relationship, autonomy
