van Meurs, Inge; Reef, Joni; Verhulst, Frank C.; van der Ende, Jan
Journal of the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry, v48 n2 p138 Feb 2009
The scores of 4- to 16-year-olds on a child behavior checklist made in 1983 is compared with those of their 6- to 18-year-old offsprings that were done in 2007. It is found that most forms of problem behavior in children were predicted by their parent's behavior as children and that continuity is stronger in mothers than fathers and in sons than in daughters.
