In order to explore the relationship among child temperament, parenting belief and mental health of preschoolers, the study included 383 preschoo-lers aged 4 to 5 years old in six administrative districts of Taipei City as the study objects. Child’s temperament performance, parenting status, child’s mental health status and related situations among the three were analyzed by “Children's Temperament Questionnaire”, “Parenting Scale” completed by the preschooler’s parents and “Children's Emotional and Behavioral Problem Checklist” completed by their teachers. The study has found: (1) Intensity of reaction in temperament dimension, girls are higher than boys. (2) Temperament of persistence of preschoolers with high SES is higher than those with middle and lower SES. (3) Parenting belief of traditional parenting of girls is higher than that boys. (4) Parents with low socioec-onomic status have higher status in the traditional parenting concepts than middle socioeconomic status and high socioeconomic status. (5) Girls are more anxious than boys. Boys are more prone to attention-hyperactivity problems than girls. Men are also more prone to aggressive-defiant than girls. Moreover, the study also found that children's temperament perfor-mance can predict their mental health: (1) Children who show low on adaptability, persistence and rhythmicity / regularity are more prone to anxiety. (2) Children who show low on adaptability are more prone to withdrawn. (3) Children who show high on intensity of reaction, sensory threshold and low on adaptability are more prone to emotionally reactive. (4) Children who show high on approach or withdrawal and show low on persistence are more prone to Attention-Hyperactivity. (5) Children who show high on approach or withdrawal are more prone to Aggressive-Defiant. (6) Children who show high on activity level, their special behavioral problems or special children’s behavioral characteristics are more easily to occur. (7) Children who show low on adaptability, their psychosomatic symptoms are more easily to occur. According to the research, children's natural temperament affects their mental health. When young children's parents and educators observe the children's suspected mental health problems, they must not only understand whether they are affected by the environment and the family, but also discuss the influence of the child's temperament on children's mental health and the relationship between them.
