  1. Ethnic variations in children's problem behaviors : A cross-sectional, developmental study of hawaii school children.

    Article - En anglais

    Variations in children's problem behaviors associated with ethnicity and other demographic variables were examined in 6-18-year-old children (N=804) residing in a multicultural environment.

    The Child Behavior Checklist-Teacher's Report Form was used to compare the frequency of behavior problems among clinic-referred and nonreferred children of Hawaiian, Asian, and Caucasian ethnicities.

    Children who were male, clinic-referred, or of Caucasian or Hawaiian ancestry experienced greater levels of behavioral problems.

    Explanations concerning ethnic variations in children's problem behaviors include : teacher's perceptual bias, differences in teacher threshold to report problem behaviors, and/or true variations in children's behavior.
