To explore the status of mental status and emotional needs of the left-behind children in Yanbian area in Jilin province, we investigated the mental status and the frequency and content of the children with their parents of 424 left-behind children in Yanbian area. The results showed that the frequency of the children with their parents was less, they may be slower in physical and emotional growth than their peers, they feel more lonely and more anxiety. Meanwhile, the absence of parental support will make some left-behind children lack self-confidence. They generally have strong affection to stay with their parents. Some may even become "problem youths". More attention and education should be put on the left-behind children in Yanbian area.
