This study investigated the relationship between (a) self-esteem and academic performance, (b) behavior and academic performance, and (c) self-esteem and behavior of male adolescents with migrant-working fathers. This study also endeavored to find if there is a difference in the self-esteem and academic performance of these boys with behavior problems and those without behavior problems. The General Weighted Average (GWA), self-esteem and behavior problems of 105 male adolescents with migrant-working fathers were gathered. Results showed a significant relationship present between self-esteem and academic performance. A relationship also was found between behavior problems and academic performance. No relationship was found between self-esteem and behavior problems. This study showed a difference in the academic performance between students with behavior problems and those without behavior problems, but no difference was found in the self-esteem between the same groups. Finally, the most common behavior problems observed among the respondents are 1) skipping school or cutting clases, 2) bullying or intimidating others, and 3) arguing with teachers, friends and classmates.
