Abstract
Bullying Tendency among School Children
Maria Kristina C. Vicente and Russel P. Galindo

Bullying is an intentional aggressive behavior that threatens or intimidates others and initiates physical fights. Millions of children around the world experienced bullying. In the Philippines, approximately a greater number of students were bullied on a regular basis in school. Awareness on bullying has shown positive effects on the lives of the bullies and victims with the implementation of prevention programs. This study aimed to assess the bullying tendency among school children in Misamis University, Ozamiz City in the Philippines. A standardized psychological test on Feelings, Attitudes and Behaviors Scale for Children (FAB-C scale) was the instrument used. Result showed that there was a considerable number of school children in Misamis University with bullying tendency with levels ranging from low to very high. A greater percentage of males had a very high level of bullying tendency compared to females. However, females having bullying tendency with levels that ranged from low to high were greater in number compared to the males. The findings may serve as the basis for the creation of bullying intervention and prevention program for the school.
