Introduction: To achieve a desirable level of motor development and physical-mental competencies and develop a healthy and active lifestyle in all people in society, particularly children  and families of the military and considering the nature of job  their fathers’ job, accurate principles on motor and exercise skills, called physical literacy principles, is required.
Objective:  Present study aimed to determine the relationships between the levels of the physical literacy of children in the 8-12 age range  with  some natures of their military fathers’ job.
Materials and Methods: The method is a descriptive-correlation in which a total of 171 children in the 8-12 age range were selected by multi-stage cluster sampling in districts 1, 4, 8 and 13 of Tehran and the Iranian version of the physical literacy test consisting of 4 subscales such as physical competence, daily physical activity, motivation and self-confidence, and knowledge and understanding was administered Further, Fathers completed a questionnaire about their occupational nature, corps, and their level of education. Findings were analyzed using descriptive statistics, ETA correlation coefficient, t- independent test, and one-way covariance analysis. Data were analyzed using SPSS 23.
Results: The physical literacy of children with staff fathers was more than those with father in the troop (Effect size=0.36, t = -4.558, P<0.01).. Furthermore, the physical literacy of children with fathers working in educational-section  was greater than those whose fathers work in operational section (P= 0/05).
Discussion and Conclusion: Children's physical literacy is related to the occupational nature of military fathers. These job natures can affect the children's active lifestyles. Knowing this relationship  affects the physical literacy of children in military families and the implementation of appropriate movement and sports programs is needed to increase the physical literacy of these children, especially among girls. Further studies on the impact of other factors on physical literacy should be conducted.
