Objectives: Living place is very important for overall development. We can say that, despite the research conducted all over the world, the situation of teenagers from Kosovo may be different. The study aims to answer two basic questions: the association of emotional and behavioral problems with temperament traits, and the gender differences between age groups in the manifestation of these emotional and behavioral problems in relation to temperament. Method: Method in this research was quantitative. The research participants are 60 patients (young, adolescent) in Psychiatric Emergency at UCCK in Prishtina, conducted in three time periods during 2018., January-April, May-August, September-December. Results: Of the total problems reported by Youth Self-Reporting, the age group that reported the most problems was that of 16 year olds, with an average of 24.71 for males where 52.00 was that of 17 years females. On the other hand, the age group reporting the least emotional and behavioral problems was that of 17-year-olds, with an average of 14.00 for males whereas for females was 15 years of age with 17.05. Conclusion: It is necessary to carry out other studies with more scientific and practical preparation. There is a need for stakeholders in the education system to be aware of the general situation, including student behavior, in order to understand and properly demonstrate individuals' academic performance and to help improve it. Keywords: adolescents, temperament, behavior, aggressiveness, parents, institutions.
