The purpose of this research was to determine the relationship between overprotection and emotional intelligence in aggressive behaviors in children of the initial level of an educational institution in Trujillo. The methodology constituted a basic type of quantitative approach and correlational-causal cross-sectional non-experimental design. The sample consisted of the parents (father or mother) of 193 children from an educational institution of the Initial level of Trujillo. For the collection of information, three questionnaires that measured each variable were applied as instruments, these questionnaires were statistically analyzed to determine their validity and reliability. The results showed that overprotection and aggressive behaviors are positively and significantly correlated (rho=.200*), explained by 4% (R2=.040), and the coincidence between emotional intelligence and aggressive behaviors was they correlate negatively with the presence of statistical significance (rho=-.143), explained by 2% (R2=.20); Said evidence allows us to accept the research hypothesis and rejects the assumption of the null hypothesis, highlighting that aggressive behaviors tend to increase as there is excessive overprotection and reduce when there is adequate emotional intelligence. It is important to note that in the responses of parents, 92.7% affirm that their children are moderately overprotective, 47.2% say that their children have high emotional intelligence and 86.5% affirm that their children manifest aggressive behavior low.
