Introduction

1.1 Background of the Study

Antisocial behavior are often exhibited by secondary school students in Imeko, because majority of them are adolescents who wants to risk behaviours like sexual activities, abortion, rape, cultism, interring, lateness and rudeness. These behaviours are inimical to the students and those in their environment.

Furthermore, Kimberly and Jacob (2002) defined antisocial behaviour as any act that imposes physical or psychological harm on other people or their property. According to them lying, stealing, assaulting others, being cruel to other and being sexually promiscuous being cruel to others and being promiscuous being cruel to others and being promiscuous are all example of antisocial behaviour. Also such behaviour may sometimes constitute a violation of legal codes, and it is often accomplished by disturbances of thoughts of emotion.

Clare (2006), defined antisocial behaviour as destructive acts characterized by convert and over as destructive acts overt hostility and intentional aggression towards others. According to Clare, high risk factor in the family setting can cause antisocial behaviours in the students.

These factor include;

  • Parental alcohol
  • Drug abuse
  • Chaotic and unstable home life
  • Absence of goods
  • Death or other separative on parenting skills
  • Parental psychiatric disorders
  • Maternal depression
  • Economic distress due to poverty
  • Unemployment

Other causes of antisocial behaviour are heavy exposure to media violence through television, movies, internet, video, games and cartons (Clare, 2006). He posited that engaging in antisocial behaviour poses great risk to an individuals mental physical health. It puts one at increased risks for alcoholism, cigarettes, smoking illegal drug use, high of sexual behaviour, depression and engaging in violent act towards others and self. In other words the high risks of interpersonal and intra-personal implications of antisocial behaviours are those with disability.

One of the group of students who are vulnerable to antisocial behaviours are those with disabilities, the include young ones. According to Hallathan (2006), antisocial behaviour may beovert, involving aggressive actions against siblings, parents, peers, teacher or other adults, such as verbal abuse, bullying and hitting or covert, involving aggressive actions against sibling, parents, peers, teacher or other adults, such as verbal abuse, bullying and hitting or covert, involving aggressive actions against property such as theft, vandalism and fire-setting-covert antisocial behaviour in early childhood may include noncompliance, sneaking, lying or secretly destroying another’s property. Antisocial behaviors also include drug and alcohol abuse. Antisocial behaviour is apparent when an individuals is finds it very difficult to adhere to the norms or standards of social environment like school.

Kay (2012), posited that antisocial behaviour can generally be characterized as an overall lack of adherence to the social norm and standards that allow members of a society to co-exist peaceful.

According to Kayne (2012), many people who display this type of behacviours may seem charming but often cause harm to others and show little remorse for their actions. Antisocial behaviours relate in complex ways to psychological mechanism, home and schools social environments and affective and cognitive pathways. As many as half of all secondary schools students who demonstrate antisocial behavior patterns continue these behaviors into adolescence, and as many as 75 percent of adolescents who demonstrate antisocial behaviors continue to do so into early adulthood.

Antisocial students who exhibit externalizing behaviors have been the primary focus of research and of school intervention programs. These are the students commit law violations and are apprehended, they typically become involved with the juvenile justice system. This is a legal term applied to a student under the ages of 18 who has committed an illegal act. Although many student are officially delinquent at sametime during their childhood, only about three percent are adjudicated each year (Kauffman, 2016). The majority of crimes committed by students are non-violent crimes; theft, forcible rape and abortion (Snyder, 2000).


1.2 Statement of the Problem

Antisocial behavior develops and is shaped in the context of coercive social interactions within the family, community, and educational environment. It is also influenced by the students’temperament and irritability, cognitive ability, the level of involvement with deviant peers, exposure to violence, and deficit of cooperative problem-solving skills.

Antisocial behavior is frequently accompanied by other behavioral and developmental problems such as hyperactivity, depression, learning disabilities, and impulsivity. Multiple risk factors for development and persistence of antisocial behaviors include genetic, neurobiological, and environmental stressors beginning at the prenatal stage and often continuing throughout the childhood years.
