Children are an inseparable part of human survival and the survival of a nation and state. Undang- UndangDasar Negara Republik Indonesia Tahun 1945 Article 28b paragraph (2) states that “every child has the right to survival, to grow and develop and has the right to protection from violence and discrimination”. This study discusses the impact of psychological violence and legal protection efforts in Indonesia. The research method used is normative juridical, with descriptive analytical research specifications that provide an in-depth description of a situation related to the problem being studied. The results of the study basically show that violence against children still frequently occur in Indonesia. Psychological violence in children has a very dangerous impact and can affect a child's psychological life. Efforts to guarantee protection of children in Indonesia have not been maximized, although positive laws in Indonesia have provided guarantees for child protection. Protection of children from acts of violence require the participation of the community, family, non-government institutions, and all other parties.
