HOROSCOPE SIGNS: Advice on how to raise your kid

Aries need to solve problems on their own to feel validated.

A Taurus child needs to be given time and space to perform their best.

Now, they might seem like they’re lazy but they just have a desire to be stable, dependable, and patient. Taurus don’t like to be rushed or pushed. If you have a possessive child, practice sharing and taking turns at home.

A Gemini child will benefit from lots of talking, singing, and writing.

Leos might 'act out' to get attention, so what the parents should do is express their pride and optimism towards them to bring out their generous qualities.

It’s important for them to remain neutral in their feelings and to not have to make a decision that could hurt another person. Also, Libras have lots of self-pity as kids. So don't tell them 'you're fine, don't cry.' And don’t jump to either extreme with your reactions. Try to be very flat.

Scorpios need alone time to process their thoughts.
