Approximately one-fifth of the caretakers reported school problems for a child in the family; 19 percent had been absent a lot, 25 percent had failed a class, and 22 percent had been temporarily suspended from school. Approximately one-third of the caretakers reported aggressive behavior by the child; 31 percent indicated a child in their family "fights a lot with other kids" and 33 percent reported that the child is aggressive toward the caretaker.
