The issue of children is a global public problem and is directly related to government programs and activities. To solve children’s problems requires commitment and accuracy of action with the intended targets. This research is oriented towards achieving goals, namely identifying children’s problems and their causes; describes the macro framework for policies and programs to fulfil children’s basic rights. Achievement of objectives requires a method; the author chooses a qualitative method. Primary data were collected through observation and interviews with selected informants, while secondary data were obtained from related documents. The research scope covered all South Lampung regencies. The analysis was carried out with a cross-matrix based on the technique of causal relationships on data to provide meaning. The results of the study show that the issue of children regarding education, health and employment which is considered by the government as the main problem is actually only symptomatic (impact) of environmental problems (poverty) of parents. The programs and activities carried out are more about relieving symptoms, while the main problems have only been partially addressed. Macro policies need to be lowered into the main program to solve poverty problems and be accompanied by affirmative programs to solve problems faced by children as symptoms. Contribution: guidelines for designing programs and activities that are relevant to the root of the problem, and placing the policy design on the main program substance and affirmative programs.
