Although there are many studies about the effect of teenagers’ strain factors on well-being, few of them focus on the mediate effect of negative emotion regulation. Based on Robert Agnew’s general strain theory, the purpose of this study was to explore the relationship among strain factors, negative emotion regulation, and well-being for junior high school students in Tainan. This study indicated that negative incidents had a direct influence on living satisfaction. Among the four kinds of negative stimuli, the living negative stimuli had the strongest influence on well-being. When students perceived themselves as being aimless in life, it did not only have a direct impact on their personal relationship and personality, but also had an influence on their living satisfaction and campus life. In addition, negative academic stimuli had an effect on self-identification and living satisfaction. After adding three kinds of negative emotion regulation, the negative emotion regulation of daily life could moderate a lot the effect of strain factors on well-being. However, it was an interesting finding that the more future negative stimuli students perceived, the better negative emotion regulation of academic performance and daily life they presented. It showed a positive attitude to face negative stimuli.
