This ia a study of twelve cases of pre-school children who were referred to the James J. Jackson Putnam Children's Center for help with unmanageable behavior. By unmanageable behavior is meant actively or passively non-conformist behavior such that the mother feels unable to control her child, The purpose of the study is to indicate the general nature of the problems which these children presented, and of the settillgs in which the problems arose. To this end, the study seeks to answer the following questions: In what ways were these children unmanageable? What other problem behavior, if aey-, did they exhibit? Why did the behavior so concern their mothers as to bring them to a child guidance clinic? On the basis of follow-up interviews, what is the present status of the unmanageable behavior?
