Introduction

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.

Introduction;

Over the past few decades, teenage pregnancy has become a public concern which has generated a great deal of attention in the locality. Increasing awareness of the social and economic consequences of teenage pregnancy has led to a consensus opinion among policy makers  and the public that teenage pregnancy and child bearing is a significant social problem. It has been linked to an array of other social issues, such as welfare dependency, child health and well-being, out of wedlock births, fatherhood responsibility, child abuse and neglect, school drop-out and workforce development. (Torivillas, The Philippine Star, 2013).

There was a strong agreement that teenage pregnancy rate is still on the increase and and every increased there has an additional consequences of abortions and fetus losses and yet reducing the number of births by this age group remains an important goal, Scott (1981).

The frequency of teenage pregnancy among the youth is alarming and has become more or less a fact of life in many nations of the world including Philippines. This remains both culturally deleterious and personally destructive. Teenage pregnancy has lots of effects on Educational Development of teenagers who are victims of this phenomenon. The Philippine government and other religious institutions  are studying every angle to look for ways to reduce untimely pregnancy among teenager. These are many factors which have been recognized by researchers and authors as being responsible for teenage pregnancy. It has been noted and well documented that today’s teenagers face more sexual temptation than previous generations. They seem to be more aware of sex and susceptible to the dangers of illicit sex. Today’s society is more bombarded with sexually oriented materials in the environment. The teenager are more vulnerable to sexual temptations. Health and Home, Philippines, Pregnant at 16, p.12-13 &22).

According to Eruesgbefe, (2005). “Today’s teenagers have become more sexually active and promiscuous compared to their age mates of some thirty, forty or fifty years ago in the Nigerian situation”. He also asserted that, “The gradual departures from the traditions, customs and religious doctrine of the different ethnic groups on the premise of civilization have been largely responsible for this. Community and families must work hand in hand to shield their teenagers against these phenomena. Increases in both health and social problems are products of uncontrollable multiple sex partners among teenagers. Mainly because the youth cannot control their emotional feelings, they rush into untimely sex, in the belief that the act will be undetected.

According to Albano (2001). In the Philippines, usually in a family, this category are not taught family life education by their parents and schools because of the sensitivity of the issue, this is contrary to the wide assumption that family life education is on. In practice, however, not much of sex education is taught in every Filipino family. Existing government family planning programs have been directed principally to married couples.

Maramag is still a growing community, cases of teenage pregnancy usually become a big issue to the neighbors and to the whole community. The family of the victim is in trauma discovering that their teenager was some months on her way already. Almost everybody is blaming the pregnant teenager of the consequences of her misdeeds. They focused their judgment to the victim but they did not bother to ask why and what were behind of indulging sex at teens and got pregnant not at the right time. The Philippine government through some of its agencies like Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD)  and Department of Education (DepEd), introduced some strategies to minimize the increasing cases of pregnancy as observed after a decade in the Philippines. Sex education is being incorporated to the subject matters in school. RH bill could be a big help to let the teenagers know how to act about sex. Filipino families and communities is properly informed about their responsibilities to their youngsters with regards to sex.  While teenagers wherever they are must be reached to educate and be well informed how to counter early pregnancy.

Religious sectors are also showing concerns about the teenagers by intensifying the activities at the church and detour  their interest while they are still young and not yet prepare to face the consequences brought about early sex. The churches now are also don’t want to left behind on nurturing the youths by instilling  to their minds  that early sex out of wed luck has consequences and the consequences hurt more than waiting. (Health and Home pp.13,2003).
