Abstract
This paper is to study the life situation and demand of the so-called left-behind children based on a questionnaire survey of 401 respondents in Hubei province, China. The result indicated that most of the left-behind children had no tutoring help in study, received normal level of care from their guardians, had low frequency of communication with their parents, received not enough psychological counseling at school, and perceived a little support from the government or social organizations. Left-behind children demanded academic counseling, family education and emotional care, and external support. Finally, we propose policy implications to meet the needs of left-behind children at levels of family, government and social organizations, and to better promote the physical and mental health of left-behind children.
