Guided by the dual filial piety model and socioemotional selectivity theory, this study explores the underlying mechanism of how adult children’s filial piety beliefs affect their parent’s life satisfaction and loneliness. A total of 350 pairs of parent-child data were collected through a parent-child pair design. Results show that emotional support provided by adult children and emotional support perceived by parents fully mediated the relationship between children’s reciprocal filial piety belief and parents’ life satisfaction (β = 0.048, 95% CI: 0.021, 0.081) and loneliness (β = -0.050, 95% CI: -0.083, -0.024), and partially mediated the relationship between children’s authoritarian filial piety belief and parental life satisfaction (β = 0.028, 95% CI: 0.010, 0.051) and loneliness (β = -0.030, 95% CI: -0.053, -0.015). This finding suggests that to improve parental well-being, adult Chinese children should not only cultivate their filial piety, but also pay close attention to their parents’ emotional needs.
