The Concept of Difficult Temperament.
Bates, John E.
Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, v26 n4 p299-319 Oct 1980
Argues that the concept of difficult temperament does not yet have enough empirical basis to justify its use for practical purposes. Suggests that the concept possesses enough construct validity to justify further research, particularly when temperamental differences are seen as a parent's perception rather than solely as a child's characteristic.
