This study is the descriptive quantitative method which takes 112 orphans randomly as samples that include grate 10th,11th, and 12th in Erbil city. The findings reveal that the family is a powerful factor in motivating children to be successful in the current and the future. Therefore, it shows that rather than they have faced many difficulties in their life still they think about the best future and they believe that life is an intelligent challenge so we never give up on our dreams. In addition, the result reveals some negative points such as most of them feel of inequality between orphans and non-orphans in the society. The result illustrates that most of them become dissatisfied when they have many requirements but nobody supports them. On the other hand, also they give up on school motivation because they think it does not meet all requirements. However, this study finds that the majority of samples trust the teachers as they are understandable educators.
