Abstract

Gender differences among adolescents in patterns of endorsement of self-control problems were examined. Eleven potential problem areas were assessed. In six areas, significant departures from expected frequencies were observed. Proportionally more females than males reported difficulty in controlling their behavior in five out of six of the endorsed problem areas.
