Abstract
One of the main factors which influence the children while watching cartoons is violence as it is a vital part of most of the cartoon programs. Through this, children are induced and attracted of violent contents (Hassan and Daniyal, 2013). Studies have shown that children's television programs shown contain 20 violent acts each hour. Using a correlational research design, this study was done to determine the possible relationship between television viewing habits and bullying among intermediate grade school children from Kabacan Pilot Central School, Kabacan, Cotabato. The study revealed varied findings relative to the viewing on TV by the pupils and their level of bullying. For example, it was found out that children who were watching Broadcasting TV Network 3 or TV5 had higher level of bullying than those children who were watching Broadcasting TV Network 2 or GMA. However, the study failed to make any conclusive finding on children who were watching Broadcasting TV Network 1 or ABS-CBN since the result showed that it was not significantly correlated to the level of bullying. Since, this research discovered children with high level of bullying, the result may be sent to the office of the principal in order to inform the class adviser of the children and provide the data to the parents for possible interventions because it might spread bullying in school as a whole.
