after rigged a character, i created an eyeball using the sphere and parent
it to the head bone, the problem occurs the moment i middle click the mouse button
and pick the head bone to be the parent, the sphere will jump to somewhere else !

Did you save local transformation keys on your eyeball? If so, parenting it to something will update the object position according to its new parent.

enable Child Compensation before you parent. Also, when you want to constrain stuff, use Constraint Compensation if you want to offset it, like position constraints.
