Abstract If children are witnessing and experiencing excessive levels of violence, we cannot deny that these factors have a bad effect on our society and children. This study aimed to determine the relationship between early adolescent students’ aggressive behavior with their television watching habits. The descriptive survey research design had been adopted to answer the guiding two research questions. 100 students were selected for the administration of the standardized Television Watching Habit Questionnaire and Student's Aggressive Behavior Rating Scale (SABRS) developed by Chakraborty. The responses were then analyzed through frequency, percentage, and t-test to verify the hypotheses. The findings demonstrated that social media, including exposure to violent television shows, violent movies, videos, and video games, as well as evaluating various social media platforms, had a detrimental effect on teenagers by encouraging aggressive behavior. Restructuring secondary schools' academic curriculum to prioritize problem-solving, fact-finding, and practical learning over theory would allow teenagers to focus on academic pursuits at home, reducing screen time and social media usage.
