Although it is known that childhood and adolescence
are the most important periods for the development of perfectionism, this is almost unknown research area in
R. Macedonia. The data were obtained in two primary schools in Stip. The sample consisted of 468 students, aged 11-14 years, from the 5th till 8th grade of primary school, of which 279 were female, and 189 male. This research aimed
to explore the relationship of perfectionism dimensions with anxiety and depression among children. We examined possible difference among four groups of children (children with the anxiety symptoms, symptoms of depression, anxiety and depression symptoms, and children with no apparent symptoms) with regard to the level of dimensions of perfectionism.
