Ramos, R. Ellen, Free Press, Resilient Classrooms (2005), stressed that Children with disruptive behavior disorders tend to struggle with interpersonal relations and might have excessive conflicts with family, friends and school staff.

A child having disrupted behavior usually have impaired socialization among his her co-pupil.  The child is often struggling to understand and to be understood by peers.  Peers too are struggling over this pupil because of her/his misbehavior.   Children having disrupted behavior are impatience that usually can’t wait and there has always the chances to interrupt someone near them.  They interrupt someone by not respecting the rights of other pupils to express their view points and inordinate or inappropriate demands for time and attention.

Tubigon, Ed. 2009, revealed that similarly, a child with a behavior disorder such as a learning disability, developmental delay or attention- problems may find it difficult to follow instructions, execute complex routines like getting dressed or wait for what they want.  Children who have a delay development can’t move and think as the way the normal children can do.  They were usually slow, acted late that makes the behind to the specific time required.

Economic Background and Disruptive Behavior

Philippines Millennium Development Goals Progress Report  (2010) – This 2010 Philippines Millennium Development Goals Progress, is related to the present study for it pointed out on the education of children coupled with gender equality and lessen poverty.    Poverty effected too much the development of children with regards to their psychosocial and mental health.   When children are affected with hunger at home and or during school days, it affects to their behavior, it could make them irritable and might lead them to have a disruptive behavior at school.   During school hours, children are surely uncomfortable, listening all the stuff of lessons filed in a day with an empty stomach and can’t absorbed right away their subject matters specially when the nutrients requires to be maintained in their body were deficit.

Bucayong, E. 1997, said that his study showed that parents sometimes fall into the trap of trying to resolve problem behaviors by arguing with the child about them. Unfortunately, trying to reason with a small child about their behavior can result in parent and child becoming worked up, and may result in anger and resentment.


The literature of legal bases helped the researcher understand that the present study is a long thrust of the Philippine government. Ten years ago, the government thrust about children rights and protection were relied more through parents look out.   But today, government intensifies their  thrust for the children’s welfare and treatments with the cooperation of parents, teachers and an agency assigned by the government.

The related literature both foreign and local had also given the researcher ideas and insights useful in carrying out her research process concerning the factors associated with disruptive behavior.    Furthermore, these foreign and local studies provided the researcher an opportunity to compare her work with the existing work related to her study in order to strengthen or back-up her recent findings and make solid framework of her new discovery related to “disruptive behavior”.

CHAPTER III – Research Methodology

This chapter presents the research design, the description of the subjects/respondents, the sampling procedure that was used, the data gathering procedure, the administration of the instrument and the treatment of data.

Research Design

The researcher chose the descriptive research design, using survey as the main tool in gathering the data. These were qualitative data where its mean purpose was to determine the extent of factors associated with disruptive behavior of grade IV and V pupils. Data collection were taken from the respondents chosen by the use of random sampling. The conditions or relationships that existed, opinions that are held, processes that are going on, effects that are evident, or trends that are developing were described using the instrument. It primarily draws attention to the present although it often considers past events and influences as they relate it to current conditions.

Research Locale

            This study was conducted at the Municipality of Cabanglasan Bukidnon District of Cabanglasan school year 2013-2014. This was chosen because of  the convenience of the researcher in gathering data for the reason that the researcher is presently employed in the same municipality .

The Municipalty of Cabanglasan is geographically located at the eastern part of Bukidnon with a total land area of 26,230 kilometer ,composes of 15 barangays. It has 35 kilometers away from Malaybalay City Bukidnon. The Local Government Unit of Cabanglasan Bukidnon also helped in implementing some

projects through donations as partnership in the smooth delivery of  educational services to the community. The Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is working with the school as partners in achieving its vision and mission. Some of the school projects were funded by the PTA as one of the stronghold  of the institution in achieving its goals of quality basic education. Thus The Cabanglasan District has 26 schools with a total number of 194 teachers as indicated in form 3. 43 of which are the grade IV and V Teacher respondents having pupils with disruptive behavior. Attached in the next page is the table  showing the distribution of teachers by school.

Respondents of the Study

            The respondents of this study were the grade four and five teachers of Cabanglasan District, during the school year 2013-2014 .They were chosen to provide important information about the Factors Associated with Disruptive Behavior of grade four and five pupils in Cabanglasan District. These respondents were validated and generated with their classroom data on pupils gender, age, educational attainment of parents, and number of children in the family. The population of the respondents is small, so the researcher used the entire population and  targeted of not less than 2 teachers in every school found in Cabanglasan District  to cooperate with her study.

IntroductionConceptual FrameworkSchematic DiagramStatement of the Problem; Null HypothesisSignificance of the StudyScope & Delimitation


Disruptive behavior of children is the common problem encountered by the teachers inside the classroom. Most of the time this will hamper the smooth flow of the teaching and learning process. This complex and troubling issue needs to be carefully understood by the  parents, teachers, and other adults.  Children as young as in the elementary schools can show disruptive behavior.  Parents and other adults who have children with such behavior were alarmed; however, they often hope that the young child will “grow out of it.” Disrupted behavior in a child at any age always needs to be addressed seriously. It should not be quickly dismissed as “just a phase they’re going through!” (Rynders, 2006,p 216).

Numerous research studies have concluded that a complex interaction or combination of factors associated with disruptive behavior leads the child and young adolescents to exhibit extreme disruptive behavior in the future if not given much attention earlier.  Research studies have shown that these disruptive behaviors can be reduced or even prevented in school, depending on the efforts exerted by the pupil, teachers, and school administrators in improving their school facilities and policies.     Most importantly, efforts should be directed by the parents by decreasing or eliminating exposure of children to violence at home and in the community. This is the usual reason why a certain pupil exhibits some sort of disruptive behavior.  (Fernandez, 2003, p 108).

Various researchers have introduced different character curricula in an effort to improve the negative behavior. A NBCT interviewees was quoted stating “if we want children to practice good character traits in school, we must teach children what is acceptable versus unacceptable behavior” (Brannon, 2008).

Instructional strategies that were implemented throughout the schools being surveyed were taught through modeling, discussion, role-playing activities and cooperative learning. There was also a focus on the notion that these strategies should be practiced at home in addition to the classroom, mainly because adults in a child’s life, whether he may be a teacher or a family member served as role models for children.

Rynders (2006) and Barton, Richard and Wenglinsky (1998) addressed an instructional method called “Character Counts!”, developed by the Josephson Institute of Ethics stated that. “If children internalize the right values, and their actions are informed by those values, they will become responsible citizens in the school hall and school room, as they will in the community as a whole”.

(Barton et al., 1998, p. 35). The program known as the six pillars of character are presented: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and citizenship. According to the “Character Counts!” website, a school in Montcalm County, Michigan has seen a decline in discipline referrals over two years (Rynders, 2006, p.216). Once children learn about character and how to develop it within, they want to become better individuals.

The Cabanglasan District Teachers are aware of the disrupted behaviors shown by some of the Grade IV & V pupils wherein they showed a wide range of behaviors such as: explosive temper tantrums, physical aggression, fighting, threats or attempts to hurt others (including homicidal thoughts), cruelty toward animals, taunting and teasing to physical assaults and destruction of property. Whenever disruptive behavior occurs at school, whether in the form of physical assault or emotional abuse, the learning process is disrupted, not only for the children directly involved but for teachers and children bystanders (Daniel L.4 Smallwood . . .)

Many of the factors causing disruptive behavior disorders happen very early in a Childs’ life. It is important to recognize and act on  the problems as early as possible. The Treatment that has shown the best results is a combination of: specialized skills training, behavior therapies to teach young people how to control and express feeling in a healthy ways and coordination of services with the young person’s school and other involved agencies.  Kazdin AE. Research design in clinical psychology 4th ed.

The government introduced and formulates acts to protect child rights and Department of Social Worker and Development (DSWD) is the lead agency to look into this.  The“PantawidPamilyangPilino Program (4Ps)”, is one of these where in the government will not just share the financial support to the children but it educates the parents as well on how to care, understand and protect their children. In spite of all these, some children are still exposed to some factors either at home and in the community that triggers them to have disrupted behavior which affected their school performance.

This study, did not only focused on the performance of the pupils’ having disruptive behavior  to measure how far the factors associated with disruptive behavior affects the school performance of the Grade IV & V pupils in Cabanglasan District.
