The analysis of multigroup invariance helps to test the validity of the research model. Satisfaction with parenting is one of the important factors regulating population reproduction and parenting willingness. Research on satisfaction with parenting of specific social groups can provide a more targeted understanding of the specific factors that affect their parenting behavior and parenting motivation. The satisfaction with parenting of parents with left behind experience may be affected by the primary family and the current family. The purpose of the present study was to examine the invariance between gender of the satisfaction with parenting for parents with left behind experience. The sample consisted of 431 parents (204 male and 227 female) with left behind experience, which conducted in 2021 in Sichuan, China. Multigroup analysis supported measurement invariance between gender, which include measurement weights, measurement intercepts, structural covariance, and measurement residuals. These results provide evidence that the model of satisfaction with parenting in the current and primary family for parents who were left behind children is a valid parenting satisfaction measure to be used among male and female actors with such experience in some regions - in particular, some regions with high number of left behind children in China.
