[22nd International Nursing Research Congress - Research Presentation] Purpose: 
 The purpose of this research was to identify family dynamic and TV viewing as predictors in the manifestation of behavior problems among preschool children.
Methods:  
 A Cross-sectional study conformed by 140 children between 3 and 6 years old attending a public or private kinder garden was conducted. We used a randomized stratified sampling.  The instruments of the study were "Preschool and Kindergarten Behavior Scales PKBS" (Cronbach Alpha = .94) and "Mexican Family Dynamic Instrument" with a high agreement between the experts.   The survey was responded by the children tutors.  Were used descriptive statistics, ANOVA, and a regression model for data analysis by SPSSv17.
Results: 
 The average age was 4.52 +/- .82, 53.5% were boys.  Eighty two percent showed a functional family dynamic and 9.3% were dysfunctional. The average of TV viewing hours per week was 20.91hrs +/- 9.75 with a minimum of 1.5 and a maximum of 40.6 hours per week.  Results: The correlation between family dynamic and TV viewing was r = -.469 (p<0.01).  Behavior problems and TV viewing had a correlation of r =.490 (p<0.01). 
Conclusion: The results showed that TV viewing is a predictor of several problem behavior in children; boys are more likely to present external behavior problems than girls; and children's behavior improved when the family dynamic scores increase.
