    Default What's the word for "pertaining to children"

    Parental = Parent
    Fraternal = Brother
    Sororal = Sister
    Neonatal = New baby
    Juvenile or Puerile = Children

    Puerile is technically correct but sounds wrong.

    It depends on the intent - 'juvenile' can have negative connotations. If it's not intended to be a humorous but negative contrast, you might go for an antonym to 'adult' instead of 'parental,' like child, youth, or kid.
