This chapter draws together contributions from different areas of the world in order to explore how different national responses to the pandemic, socioeconomic conditions, and levels of mediatization – that is, increasing embedment of (digital) media in social processes – shaped children’s everyday lives under these difficult circumstances. COVID-19 represented a huge challenge for each and every country in the world, spotlighting more than ever before differences between societies, socioeconomic contexts, legal and political systems, communities’ reactions, and age groups’ specific problems. The countries that are represented in this chapter include – Argentina, India, Italy, New Zealand, Nigeria, and Taiwan. They were chosen as case studies representing different continents to highlight these differences. The chapter presents six separate analyses of challenges encountered in each country and was written by one of the authors, followed by a brief conclusion.
