The main focus was to examine maternal anxiety of 21 mothers as related to caregivers' and mothers' ratings of toddlers' behavioral difficulties. A new behavioral rating scale for toddlers was constructed. The results presented are preliminary. Caretakers rated toddlers of mothers with high anxiety to be more problematic, while the mothers rated their toddlers' behaviors as less problematic. Results indicate a possible interaction between maternal anxiety and toddlers' behavior.
