Action research bully
“Bullying involves an initial desire to hurt, this desire is expressed in action, someone is hurt, the action is directed by a more powerful person or group, it is without justification, it is typically repeated, and it is done so with evident enjoyment. ” Ken Rugby (1998). The future of the youth is formed and developed within the confines of their own respective homes. It is in the home that the youth acquires basic skills, habits, and attitudes for this home molded personality. Home is the starting point of one’s development into a full grown adult.
Home environment is the very first place where teenagers nowadays learned how to socialize and integrate themselves with others. When a child is born he/she becomes a member of an already established social institution. He/she becomes a member of his/her own family with its already existing sets of cultural patterns and sets of social, moral, and religious values. The child also carries with it the raw materials for the development of its peculiarly unique individual personality. Once attitudes have been learned, they determine to a large extent to what an individual perceives and how he/she behaves.
So, it is clear that an individual can perceive things based on the way he/she was trained in congruent with his/her primary group. It is assumed that the personality develops and changes differently in each type of the family. So whatever kind of family a child belongs, it will certainly reflect on his/her attitudes towards his/her own self and others. Bullying and being bullied have been recognized as health problems for children and teenagers because of their association with adjustment problems, including poor mental health and more extreme violent behavior.
It is therefore important to understand how bullying and being bullied affect the well-being and adaptive functioning of youth. We sought to use multiple data sources to better understand the psychological and social problems exhibited by bullies, victims, and bully-victims. Of today’s living, family conflicts or stormy relationships consisting within the family could be one of the factors that cause the misbehaver of students in and out of the home. Their place of learning or school environment serves as the outlet of their emotions and feelings.
In connection with this, the researchers, found it interesting and worthy to study he veracity behind this issue. To find out what are the factors in the home environment that can possibly contribute to the change of the bully behavior and how this would affect his/her relationships and attitudes towards other people. Background of the Study Home is the place where the child initially learns or can learn his most basic values, aspirations and attitudes. Because of its major role as transmission belt, there is concern not only for what the family does but also for what it fails to do.
Consciously and unconsciously, a parent sets patterns in their children on the basis of which their social growth is guided. Children absorb from their parents certain attitudes toward interpersonal or social relationships, getting an education, religion and others. The social personality of the child depends greatly upon the nature of these behaviors. The growing youngsters need to become accustomed increasingly to enable them to apply, to persons and groups outside the family, the sympathetic interest and the creative-partnership process which have been cultivated within the family circle.
Statement of the Problem The study attempted to determine the influence of home environment on the behavior of the bullies to the students. More specifically, it attempts to answer the following questions: 1 . What is the level of behavior of the respondent? 2. How do the level of influences of the following compared when group according to the given characteristics: 2. 1 Home environment 2. 2 Behavior 3. How does the level of influences of the home environment compared to the level of behavior of the respondents?
Purpose of the study This research primarily aims to know the influences of the home environment on the behaviors of the bullies. This study influences according to their characteristics and home environment, and behavior. Significance of the study Since the development of the child is to a great extent dependent on the influence of the home, if the home is not self-sufficient to provide personality development of the child, the school therefore, enters as necessary complement and supplement of the home.
In connection with this, the findings of the study will be useful and of great help to parent and teachers in understanding the attitudes of the students in and out of the school premises. It will help determine the needs of the students physically, emotionally and socially. It is also helpful in strengthening parents and hill’s relationship as a whole. Furthermore, this study is important not only to the parents but also to teachers because it will help them understand their work better so that they can cooperate in helping the child’s active participation in social living.
The findings of this study are also relevant to the students themselves, for they may be guided in realizing the extent of their deviation from the group average in their personal and social relationships. Such realization may lead them to deeper insights and ultimately to self-direction and self-realization.
