Domestic Violence against children is a major threat to global development as well as the attainment of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Domestic Violence is found in schools, institutions (such as orphanages and other residential care), on the streets, in the workplace and in prisons. Children experience domestic violence in their homes, schools and from other children.This study examined social determinants of domestic violence against children and their rights. It examines specific objectives such as parents educational status and child maltreatment, unemployment of parents and street hawking, family size and child abuse, parents income and right of children to quality education. The study further examined existing literature of various scholars; three theories were applied and used to explain the prevalence of teenage pregnancy. The theories adopted were Attachment theory, Ecological systems theory, and Social learning theories. The quantitative and qualitative method was used, and the sampling method used was the probability sampling technique. Specifically, the multi-stage sampling technique adopted was the survey method. The research instrument used was the questionnaire and in-depth interview, a sample size of 190 respondents was selected. The respondents were children from 0-18 years old living and schooling in shomolu local government area of Lagos state. The data collected from the field were analysed using statistical package for social sciences (SPSS). The results are represented in tables, simple frequency percentage were used for the objectives while chi-square analysis was used to test the hypothesis raised. Four hypotheses were raised, two of the hypotheses were accepted and two were rejected. Recommendations were made in tandem with the findings of the study.
