On item 100. Please write in any problems the child has that were not listed above, what should be done if a respondent describes behavior that is specified elsewhere on the problem list?

Answer: Score the item only where it is most precisely specified on the problem list, whether or not the respondent has scored it there as well as in item 100.  For example, if the respondent wrote "very jealous of younger sister, " and scored it 2 for item 100, only item 30. Easily jealous should be scored 2, rather than item 100, whether or not the respondent had also scored item 30.
