I collected data on children's disclosure over 4 waves. Children's disclosure (varialbe name = y) is measured by two indicators ( x1 and x2). Now I want to model the trajectory of children's disclosure over the four waves (see below for the scripts I wrote). Since I want to compare the means of children's dislcosure across boys and girls. I am wondering what command should I add to get the mean of the intercept and slope. With my currrent scripts, the mean of the intercept of children's disclosure is estimated as 0.
Could you please have a look at my script and give some suggestions on how to revise? Thanks much!
