Data were analyzed by Pearson correlation test and path analysis at a significant level (P<0.05). The results showed that the variable of parents' social support of physical activity affects all four endogenous variables (physical activity, tendency to exercise, enjoyment of physical activity and the level of physical activity) and perceived motor competence, physical activity enjoyment and tendency to exercise variables, can also predict the level of physical activity as mediating variable.
