  1. For each model the corresponding CBCL scales as measured in the third observation (at age 8) were included as covariates (see Fig. 2)
  2. INT CBCL internalizing scale, EXT CBCL externalizing scale, EM-DYS CBCL emotional dysregulation scale, SSCMD standardized structural coefficient of the stable component of maternal depression, SSCA standardized structural coefficient of the autoregression for each criterion, Δχ2(1) chi square of the difference with 1 degree of freedom between the model investigated and the same model with the structural coefficient of maternal depression fixed to 0
