Protective function of family during COVID 19 has gotten even stronger than before. Parents take care of child’s heath even more than before. People have been confined to their homes and children are always in front of their parents and under their protection. COVID 19 is big threat to everyone’s life and parents are really worried for their children. They take strict actions to protect their children from the dangerous virus.

the lockdown/quarantine measures instituted in many countries have also invited vulnerability and risk within families. Schools are being closed which leads to distress in many families not accustomed to being so closely confined for a long time period. Moreover, as a result of the COVID-19 crisis, much, if not all, of the support given to families who provide long-term care for an ill parent, partner, or child is lost. Families with a child who requires specialized care and guidance now have to care for their child 24 hr a day without the outside guidance provided by medical nursery, daycare, or special education services. Families who care for a father, mother, or partner with dementia or other serious illness now have to manage without day care or daytime activity. School closures have created a family environment where children are rarely allowed to leave the house and are confronted by the vulnerabilities of a family member’s addiction, aggression, and violence. Children of divorced co- parents are suddenly being refused alternating parental care because one of the parents now works from home and cannot provide child care. All of these families and their interrelationships are often undergreat pressure as a result of the stresses created by coronavirus pandemic.
