Abstract

The phenomenon of street children is a phenomenon that occurs in almost all countries, including in Merauke. Street children in Merauke are better known as aibon children because of their habit of inhaling aibon glue. Their life and habits inhaling aibon glue affect their social behavior to others. This study aims to describe the social behavior of aibon children in Merauke based on Maslow's needs theory. This type of research is descriptive qualitative with observation method. Data is taken by observation and interviews with several key informants. The results showed that the aibon children's social behavior, namely politeness and solidarity behavior, were indirectly influenced by their desire to fulfill their daily needs. The politeness and solidarity behavior shown by aibon children is the impact of the desire to fulfill basic physiological needs, basic security needs, basic needs and love, basic needs of self-esteem, and self-actualization needs.
