    Abstract

    This study aims to identify learning attitudes and behaviours among children living at Children's Home Taiping. The study sample consists of 39 children residing at Children's Home Taiping. The study uses structured interviews to gather data from the respondents regarding their attitudes and behaviours toward at-home learning. The results indicate that most of the children accommodated in Children's Home Taiping display negative attitudes and behaviours toward various aspects of learning. Absence of parental support and the social environment of the children's home itself negatively impact the children's development of educational aspirations and ability to self-manage their at-home learning
