Abstract:
Objective: To examine the role of infant temperament, middle childhood moral affect and parental discipline practices in relation to conduct problems in children. Design: Two groups of boys were compared i.e., a conduct problem and a non-conduct problem group. Twenty-one boys referred to a child mental health service or attending schools for children with emotional and behavioural difficulties because of oppositional and/or conduct problems were compared to 23 boys attending a mainstream primary school who were identified by their class teacher as being "well-behaved". A multi-method approach to data collection was employed. Parents completed questionnaires and rating scales regarding their child's early infant temperament and current behaviour problems. Parents also completed questionnaires relating to the type of discipline practices they employed. The children were assessed to determine their level of overall emotional responsitivity and their level of self-conscious moral emotions. They were also assessed to determine their level of verbal IQ. The child's teachers completed a rating scale about the child's behaviour at school.
