The main goal of this research is to determine the presence of emotional and behavioral problems in preschool children coming from singleparent families in Split kindergartens. The study included 100 children from singleparent families and a control group which included the same number of children from families with both parents. An appropriate questionnaire was used to collect data on family status and standardized Achenbach CBCL and TRF questionnaires for the assessment of behavioral and emotional problems of children. Results show no statistically significant differences in the presence of disorder in children in families with one parent as well as they show a child’s gender is much more significant predictor of disorders incidence than family structure. In recognising the problems parents’ and educators’ predictions were similar, but in estimating the intensity of disturbances estimations of single parents differ substantially from estimations of educators.
