  1. Pattern of preschool behaviour problems in New Zealand, using the Behaviour Check List.

    Developmental problems decreased with increasing age, while relationship problems and worries that were cognitively mediated worsened.

    There were no major differences in the patterns between boys and girls.

    On cross-cultural comparison, parents in New Zealand rated their children lower on the BCL compared to those in the UK.
