Abstract
The current research aims to identify the level of counter-induction among students of the College of Basic Education at the University, and to identify the level of rational thinking, and also to identify the relationship between counter-induction and rational thinking, and female students), including (50) male students and (50) female students) from the two departments (Special Education, Science). To achieve the goals, the researcher relied on the (Shitb, 2014) scale, which is the most suitable for the research sample represented by students of the College of Basic Education at the University of Mosul. The scale consisted of (28) items and five alternatives (exactly, often, sometimes, rarely, never apply to me), and also the researcher relied on the (Mohammed, 2019) scale of rational thinking, which consists of (32) items, each carrying the following alternatives (I always agree, I agree sometimes, I don’t agree,
I never agree), and the researcher carried out the procedures of honesty and reliability on the two tools by the method of apparent honesty and stability by the method of re-testing. The main ones have counter-attractiveness in a significant proportion, and they also have rational thinking, and that there is a positive relationship between the two variables at the level of significance (0,05), and the researcher came up with a set of recommendations and suggestions that support the research.

The number of the research sample reached (20)  pupils  by (10) pupils of the experimental group who studied according to the strategy of the hot chair and (10) pupils of the experimental group who studied according to the traditional method. The researcher has balanced between the two groups in the following variables: (The chronological age is calculated in months, the grade of reading for the second grade of primary school and the pre-test for the scale of attention deficit.) The researcher adopted the attention deficit scale prepared by (Al-Obaidy, 1999) and the validity of the scale was confirmed by presenting it to a group of arbitrators to find out its validity.Its validity has been confirmed by  using the Pearson correlation equation, and the validity coefficient is  (0.82). by using the Mann, Tennessee, and Coxen test results showed the following that there was a statistically significant difference between the average degrees of post-application of the motivation scale for the experimental group students who studied using the traffic lights strategy and the control group students who studied using the usual method.

     The presence of the parents and the basic fundamental requirement in creating quality of life for children, especially the father, because the first role model for his children, as his image remains great does not match the greatness, an example of security, strength and masculinity and protects his children, an example of tenderness and kindness; because he embraces them, an example of love; an example of good education; because he guides them and advises them. Hence, the importance of having a father who instills values, attitudes, habits and concepts in the hearts of his children, this qualifies them for positive psychological compatibility with themselves first, and then with their external environment, which includes school and peer group in general.
       Psychological and emotional Compatibility can only occur within a family that provides children with affection, love, care, reassurance and a sense of stability. Any imbalance in the stability of this family through the loss of one of its main pillars from a father or mother may disturb its balance, which leads to cracking and the fall of its functions, her children are then subjected to emotional deprivation, which is a major cause of a lack of quality of life.
      Therefore, the current research came to study the level of quality of life of orphans in the intermediate stage, and in order to reach the objectives of the research the researcher built a scale consisting of (18) items, the researcher also selected a sample that included (150) orphans of males and females, and the researcher extracted items of the scale of coefficients of Validity and Stability in order to apply it to the research sample. After the researcher finished applying the quality of life measure to orphans, the results showed the following:
a-The sample suffers from poor quality of life.
b - There is no effect of variable (sex, and school stage) on the quality of life of orphans.
     After obtaining the results of the research, the researcher made a set of recommendations and suggestions, as follows:
