Character building values are part of the value education. Character building value will be successful if it can touch the learners’ moral feelings (moral filling) without any violence either physically or verbally. Thus learners are approached to change gently and humanely, so there is a desire to improve towards the better coming from within the learners without any coercion. The facts in the field show that the coaching done by the teacher is accompanied by shouting and harsh words. This phenomenon appears especially in the schools at the coast of Padang City. This article aims to analyze the forms of character building of learners accompanied by verbal violence in some coastal elementary schools of Padang City. The research approach used is qualitative and quantitative method. The instruments of data collection are through observation, interview and FGD. The research findings demonstrate that in the character building of students, the principals, teachers and education personnel in schools keep using words containing verbal abuse, such as using the word "animals" and calling students with titles instead of their names. The obvious impact of this way is the lack of respect and sympathy of the students to the teachers which is away from the goal of character education. The students are at high risk coping with their learning environment and their latent future.
