Introduction: The purpose of this study was to determine what early childhood risk factors predict which child will have behavior problems at school age. Research suggests that 10%- 25% of children have behavior problems that disrupt family life. Methods: Secondary analysis using data from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth 1979 (U.S. Bureau of Labor) was used to describe and test relationships based on a transactional model that negatively impact child behavior (N=526). Theoretical Framework: The study is guided by the transactional model that states that the development of the infant or child occurs within the context of the environment and that the environment transacts with the infant over time to produce developmental outcomes Subjects: The target sample for this study is children with a complete battery of assessments, that is, children with temperament scores, motor-social scores, HOME-SF score and Behavior Problem Index scores. Selecting children who were born between 1990 and 1993 and by using assessments from the 1992 and 1998 surveys captured children between the ages of one month and nine years. A final sample of 526 children was used for analysis Results: Logistic regression produced a model predicting 62.8% of school age behavior problems. Gender, child temperament and parenting ability and during early childhood were significant predictors of behavior problems in school-age children. Adjusted odds ratios indicate even in a non-clinical population the significant predictors of temperament gender and parenting ability appreciably increase a child's risk for behavior problems.
