The present study aims to determine the relationship between coping styles and negative emotional states (depression, anxiety and stress) in parents during their children's virtual classes for COVID-19 in a private school in the city of Camana. The study design was non-experimental, transectional, and correlational. The sample consisted of 210 parents where the 86.8% are women and 13.2% are men, the ages fluctuate between 21 to 65 years of age, the instruments used were the COPE Coping Estimation Questionnaire by Carver et al. and the Depression, Anxiety and Stress Scale DASS -21 by Peter Lovibond and Sydney Harold Lovibond. The results showed that the style focused on the problem is mostly used depending on the circumstances, with respect to the strategies in this style, it’s seen that the majority use active coping and planning activities depending on the circumstances. With respect the coping style focused on problem avoidance, it was found that the majority of those evaluated used it very rarely. It was also observed that the majority of parents presented a normal level of stress 86%, also 66.2% of those evaluated presented a normal level of anxiety, while 83.8% had a normal level of depression. Finally, it could be concluded that there is no statistically significant correlation between stress, depression, and anxiety with coping styles centered with the problem. No statistically significant correlation was found between stress, depression and anxiety with the style centered in the emotion. No statistically significant correlation was found between stress (r = .054; p = .532), depression (r = .098; p = .257) and anxiety (r = .117; p = .173) with the style focused on problem avoidance. Although a statistically significant relationship was found between depression and denial (r = .184; p = .032), as well as between anxiety and denial (r = .206; p = .016), in both cases the The relationship is directly proportional, which means that greater depression or anxiety are associated with greater use of the denial strategy.
