Looking for some parenting tips for your child's zodiac sign?
Every child is different. They possess different traits that make up the base of their personality. Just as with an adult, a child’s zodiac sign can provide insight into how the inner workings of the child’s mind function. By better understanding your child you can provide better guidance, helping them develop into a more well-rounded adult. Here are some great parenting tips for your child's zodiac sign.
1. PISCES (FEBRUARY 19 – MARCH 20)
The Pisces child is the gentle dreamer of the zodiac. They will want perfection and cannot accept that the world is a cruel place. These kind souls will have a love for animals and will despair at the death of even a wild bird or squirrel to the point of tears. To escape from reality, they will develop a vivid imagination. They love anything that can take them away from their current realm of existence. Video games, books, movies, or anything that can take them out of their current reality and drop them into a world that is more tolerable. It is not advised to bring them back to reality by completely removing them from their fantasy world, they need to be reminded that they have responsibilities. If they can live in their fantasy world 24/7, they will have a harder time adjusting to the working world as an adult.
2. Aries (March 21 – April 19)
The Aries child is full of adventure and always ready to go. Seldom do they like to stay still for long. To keep them content you must allow them to be productive. If they have an interest in something, it is best to let that interest flourish but don’t go overboard. An Aries is a reckless spirit that needs to be reminded of the dangers of the world. They are so brave that they often go head-on into danger and need to be reminded of their limitations.
3. Taurus (April – May 20)
The Taurus child is a real charmer. They can get their way just by dashing that winning smile and kindly taking what they want. They can be stubborn, and it may take some willpower not to give in to their wishes all the time. Later, their wishes will be larger than a doll or a movie. They are usually calm in demeanor and can stay on one task for a long period of time. This can be a good thing but make sure that their favorite pastime isn’t binge-watching their favorite TV shows for days at a time. Make sure that they find a hobby that can fill some of their time.
4. Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
The Gemini child absorbs every new piece of information like a sponge. They have energy to spare and are prone to boredom if not intellectually stimulated all the time. Reading is a great pastime because it stimulates them and provides them with a wealth of information to absorb. If they are not interested in a subject they are learning, however, it is hard for a Gemini child to stay focused. They are prone to fidgeting and doodling in class. It is not that they are trying to misbehave, they are just ready to move on to a topic that interests them more.
5. Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
The Cancer child is known to be clingy, especially to their main caregiver. They tend to be emotional and take longer to learn how to control their emotions. They feel every emotion very deeply making them in tune with their surroundings. They are good at making decisions and sticking to them. At a young age, this characteristic of the Cancer may appear as defiance but will come in handy later in life. The most important thing to remember with a Cancer child is how easy it is to hurt their feelings and how hard it is for them to heal their emotional wounds. A Cancer child will need a bunch of hugs and reassurance that they are loved.
6. Leo (July 23 – August 22)
The Leo child needs your attention and expects it to be given to them. They can come off bossy, but this will help them later in life when they decide to step into leadership roles. These children need to be in the limelight and if you don’t show up for their games or plays they will let you know about it. Without the proper amount of the right kind of attention, they will compete for your attention in less than productive ways. These children are not trying to be conceited, they just need to be reminded of their worth. Give them the praise that they deserve, and they will shine.
7. Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
The Virgo child needs order and strives for perfection, most of the time to the point of frustration. In school, they will strive for the best grade but will be rashly harsh on themselves if they do not get that perfect GPA. It is important for them to learn that their best is usually good enough. This will not lead the Virgo to accepting mediocracy as it would other signs. They need the reminder that being a perfectionist is more of a curse than a blessing.
8. Libra (September 23 – October 22)
The Libra child just wants everyone to get along. They crave a balanced, well-adjusted social and family life. When conflicts do arise, the Libra child is likely to take both sides of the argument causing them to be viewed as either the mediator or simply two-faced. They don’t mean to be two-faced, they just can’t handle the imbalance that comes along with conflict. They want everyone to like them and take any harsh comment to heart. It is critical to teach the Libra child that life is not always fair. They will never truly accept this fact and will have to find ways to cope with reality. Escaping through art, literature, and music will benefit the Libra throughout life.
9. Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
The Scorpio child is inquisitive by nature. They will ask you many questions and will not stop until they believe they have all the information they can possibly get out of you. The Scorpio child will want to know the secrets of others and will figure out ways to dig up all the dirt they can. They march to the beat of their own drum and do not mind being thought of as different or weird. Encouraging a Scorpio to develop their questioning nature into a constructive passion will help them harness their abilities and use them for good. Developing a love for research and exploration will help the Scorpio child later in life.
10. Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
The Sagittarius child is a traveler by heart. They want to know about the world around them but will have a greater interest in other parts of it that they have yet to visit. Once they decide to take an interest in a topic, they will not stop until they know all they can about it. This can lead to obsessions with different areas of study and they may feel superior because of their vast knowledge of it. They are full of energy, both intellectual and physical, and need constructive ways to expel it. Organized sports may provide a way to expel that need for exercise and the strategy-learning will provide an avenue to use that brainpower.
11. Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
The Capricorn is a natural rule follower and will have no problem following them if they agree with them. If they do not think that the rules are fair or logical, they are inclined to ignore them. They are equipped with a sense of dry witticism and a wealth of sarcasm. They are very critical of themselves and those in their lives. These children will not demand your attention but will need it just the same. They need to be encouraged to interact with other children their age. If they had to choose, they would rather spend time alone reading or playing a video game.
12. Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
The Aquarius child is likely to question authority and if you are the parent, you are the authority. These social butterflies will have a group of friends that they belong to early in life. They need to be around others and cannot stand quiet. It is best to get these children on a sports or academic team of some kind whenever that option becomes available. They have a longing for comradery and love to compete as a team. Even though these children love to be around others, they keep their inner selves locked away. They do not like to show emotion and can let something eat at them until they finally explode. It is best to keep a close eye on the type of friends that an Aquarius child hangs out with because they are highly influenced by those around them.
