The present study of school-aged children examined physical violent behaviors' relationships with disadvantageous, social relationship, mental health, and other factors. This study employed a sample of 11,585 school-aged children extracted from a cross-sectional data set, the Health Behavior in School-Aged Children (HBSC), 2009–2010. Physical violent behaviors in the present study referred that school-aged children exhibited physical aggression and fighting, threated or attempted to hurt other students in school, and carried or used weapons on school property. The empirical results of multivariate regression model revealed that male students, delinquent peer affiliation, weak parental monitoring, poor school performance, educational pressure, any drug use, alcohol use, daily computer/videogame usage were all positively associated with physical violent behaviors among school-aged children.
