Abstract

Two temperamentally extreme (extremely easy and extremely difficult) subgroups of children were selected at the age of 7 years from a large random sample of the general population of Quebec City. The clinical status, family functioning, IQ, and academic performance of these children were reassessed at 12 and 16 years of age. Findings suggest that extreme temperament at age 7 predicts psychiatric status in preadolescence and adolescence only when family functioning is also taken into account. The adolescents who had been temperamentally difficult children and who were living in families with dysfunctional behavior control displayed more clinical disorders.
