The study was done to investigate the relation between controlling with hypochondria and life satisfaction of parents having children with mental retardation. It is a correlative study. 200 sample parents (I00 mothers and I00 fathers) were chosen using simple random sampling. This study includes three questionnaires: Ratter control scale (83% kranbakh alpha), Hypochondria (79% kranbakh alpha) and Taft's life satisfaction scale (83% kranbakh alpha). Independent T test, correlation coefficient and regression analysis were used to analyze data in this research. According to regression test, there is a significant negative correlation between control source and life satisfaction. But there is no significant relation between control source and hypochondria. Results also showed that there is no significant difference between parents with internal control source and those with external control source of hypochondria. Parents with internal control source are more satisfied in life than those with external control source. Results also showed that life satisfaction has a direct relation with hypochondria and fathers are more satisfied in life than mothers.
