This study tried to explore the differences in moral expectation and moral disengagement between children and parents, and the relationship between moral expectation and moral disengagement. According to the findings, the children and parents had high consistency in moral expectation, especially in personal inherent morals. The parents’ moral expectation for children was higher than children themselves. The children’s moral disengagement level was higher than their parents’. There were significant gender differences in moral disengagement. The males’ moral disengagement level was higher than females. The only child’s moral disengagement level was higher than the non-only child. The students with a high level of social adaptive morals had a low level of moral disengagement, while the students with a high level of personal inherent morals had a low level of moral disengagement. This study is of significance for moral education towards adolescents.
