    Overprotection - чрезмерная опека, but I don't think there is an adjective from this words or with this sense, but there is a lot of ways to express this sense otherwise, such as: Иногда родители чрезмерно опекают своих дете, трясутся над ними, как курица над цыплятами, как наседка над яйцом (usually about mothers) and so on.

    "гиперопека", noun. "гиперопекающий", adj.
    "гиперзабота", noun. "гиперзаботливый", adj.

    Note that these words are rare, and almost restricted to psychology domain. However, I've heard the nouns sometimes in real life. Adjectives are very rarely used.
