The purpose of this study was to investigate the mediating effect of self-efficacy on the relationship between fathers' child-rearing attitude and children's prosocial behavior. The participants were 410 children aged 3-6 years, who completed scales of the fathers' child-rearing attitude, children's prosocial behavior, and self-efficacy. The data were analyzed in terms of a hypothesized structural equation model using AMOS 7.0. The results were as following. Firstly, the fathers' child-rearing attitude was found to have a direct effect on children's prosocial behavior and self-efficacy. Secondly, children's self-efficacy was also found to affect children's prosocial behavior directly. Thirdly, children's self-esteem have a mediated effect on the relationship between fathers' child-rearing attitude and the children's prosocial behavior.
