[Objective] To understand parents' willingness to intervene on obesity-related behaviors of their middle school children in Xuhui District and Changning District of Shanghai and analyze its influencing factors, so as to provide evidence for intervention.

[Methods] Two middle schools each in Xuhui District and Changning District were randomly selected for questionnaire survey targeted at all students of grade 6 and 7 and their parents. The data of valid questionnaires was assessed respectively through Chi-square test, correlation analysis and logistic multi-factors regressive analysis.

[Results] The results showed 90% parents recognized that their children had obesity-related risk behaviors, and 77.2% parents hoped these risk behaviors could be changed in the next six months. The score of parents' knowledge, whether they had accompanied their children for physical activities and whether they had bought snacks for children 7 days since the survey were correlated with their willingness to correct behaviors of their children. However, the willingness of parents and their children depicted no correlation.

[Conclusion] Behavioral intervention for middle school students should be expanded to school, community and society, instead of being confined to home. The efforts to increase parents' knowledge on obesity control and take positive action would be beneficial to the reduction of obesity-related risk behaviors of their children.
