The study aimed to identify the perception of children from the fundamental school between aggressiveness in the family and in the school, verifying possible differences among this variable with gender, age, grade and type of school. The aggressiveness scale was applied in 758 brazilian students, from second to fourth grade, of both genders, from which 50,4% were girls. The participants revealed few aggressive actions. The aggressive behavior in the family had higher level than the one in the school. The influence of gender on the aggressiveness of the participants was identified. Boys showed higher and more significant levels of agressivity in the family than girls. Significative differences for age and grade were ascertained only in family aggressiveness.
