The sample consisted of 511 undergraduate students who studied in Thailand. Proportion stratified random sampling was used. Questionnaires were used to collect data, with Cronbach’s Alpha coefficient between 0.54 - 0.86. Data were analyzed by structured equation modeling technique. The result showed that the proposed model fitted with the empirical data . The result of path analysis showed that 1) Empathy had positive and direct effected on Prosocial behavior (β = 0.43, p < 0.05). 2) Supportive love rearing practices had positive and direct effected on Prosocial behavior (β = 0.23, p < 0.05).
