Parent-child relationship (PCR) is an important factor affecting college students' sense of social responsibility (CSSSR), and social justice plays a mediating role between PCR and CSSSR. The social responsibility of college students increases with age, and gender differences have a significant impact on college students' social responsibility. Therefore, it is necessary to explore the influence mechanism of PCR, social justice, and gender on college students' social responsibility. This article explores the current situation and influencing mechanisms of college students' social responsibility from three aspects: PCR, social equity and gender, and puts forward suggestions to promote college students to assume social responsibility. The experimental results show that when the PCR score is 5.1, the social responsibility score is 5 points, and when the PCR score is 8.9, the social responsibility score is 6.78. It can be seen that the positive correlation between the two is not very significant.
