The aim of this research was to explore parental participation in child health promotion services within a Hong Kong community. There are many elements influencing the effect of health promotion services. One is the extent of parental participation. However, research in this area is limited. Focus group data were content analyzed. Six themes were conceptualized. They are Equity, Equality, Evolution, Engagement, Consultation, and Continuity. We concluded that a strategic approach in partnership with families is required for health promotion activities for children. The findings contribute to an understanding of the crucial factors for the promotion of parental participation in health promotion services.
