Abstract

Violence against children is often termed child abuse. Violent treatment of children can have an impact on children's behavior and result in mental disorders in children. Good children's experiences as well as bad experiences will be recorded in the child's subconscious and will be carried over to adulthood and even throughout his life. If this happens, it will become a chain and culture of violence. During the Covid-19 pandemic, the number of cases of violence against children in Indonesia has increased. Learning from home and working from home make the intensity of the interaction between children and their families tighter. Life pressures, dullness, and boredom experienced by both children and parents are vulnerable to creating conflicts that lead to violence. In the end, the child as the weaker person is in the position of being victimized. By using a descriptive-analytic method, this research presents data and explanations by the reality of existing phenomena. Data collection was carried out by reviewing the literature and reviewing literature data related to legal protection for children. The findings show that the government guarantees and provides protection to child victims of violence.
