Father ratings of teen delinquency were not significantly related to teen’s self-reported delinquency for males on both the YSR and PBI.
Mothers were significantly more reliable in their ratings of teen aggression and hostility in males than females.
In Table 1, fathers were more reliable than mothers in their ratings of teen hostility and hyperactivity; however in Table 2, we see that:
Mothers were more reliable in reporting male teen hostility and female teen hyperactivity.
Fathers were more reliable in reporting female teen hostility and male teen hyperactivity.
Closest friends were significantly more reliable in rating teen’s delinquency for both males and females on the YSR, but only for males on the PBI. Their ratings were also significantly more reliable than father ratings.
