In a sample of 2- and 3-yr.-old Chinese children (N = 156), mothers' and teachers' ratings showed modest correspondence on boys' internalizing psychopathology but no correspondence on girls' internalizing. Mothers' and teachers' ratings also showed no correspondence on externalizing psychopathology across child's gender. Mothers' ratings were found to be significantly higher than teachers' ratings on externalizing.
