Wrongful acts for children? That's about right (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

torts

'wrongful acts' is the definition.
(I've seen this in another clue)

'children? that's about right' is the wordplay.
'children?' becomes 'tots' (tot is a kind of child).
'that's about' means one lot of letters goes inside another.
'right' becomes 'r' (common abbreviation).
'tots' placed around 'r' is 'TORTS'.

'for' acts as a link.
