Purpose -  This research aimed to describe the level of parental burnout of parents in children during the COVID-19 pandemic.  

Method - Measurements were carried out using the Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI) instrument. Participants in this research amounted to 164 people spread across various regions in Indonesia.

Result - 15% of parents experienced a high level of parental burnout, 64% of parents experienced a moderate level of parental burnout and 21% of parents experienced a low level of parental burnout in the care of children under 18 years old during the COVID-19 pandemic. The results of another survey of the need for assistance were that 96% of parents answered that it was necessary to provide a self-healing guidebook related to mental health issues (self-therapy).

Implications – This research has an impact on developing a first aid handbook to assist parents in identifying and dealing with parental burnout independently through self-healing therapy.

Originality – This research is an overview of the need for assistance that can be provided or developed by further researchers especially in the care of children under 18 years old during the COVID-19 pandemic.
