Along with the development of technology, every child is required to be more creative and smart in its usage. The negative impact of technology development raises the number of acts of violence, both verbal and nonverbal, committed by parents to children or among the children. Thus, the protection of children's rights is the responsibility of every human being, including the government, the environment, the family. The community must contribute to the fulfillment and safeguarding of children's rights contained in the Convention on the Rights of the Child. In 2018, Yogyakarta was already at nindya level for child-friendly cities in Indonesia. The fulfillment of children's rights emphasized in Yogyakarta was the freedom of thought and expression safely and comfortably. This study aims to examine the role of local governments in implementing Local Regulation Number 1 of 2016 concerning child-friendly cities in order to create such a city. This research is a normative-empirical study with a qualitative descriptive approach. The results concluded that the Yogyakarta regional government had carried out its role well in making Yogyakarta a child-friendly city by planning and carrying out an integrated program to realize the child-friendly city.
