Parenting with Astrology
It’s important to know the general theme of each astrological sign so you can understand how your child is "programmed, where s/he is going and thus prepare him or her for the journey. These are elements that will be ingrained in their psyche and will be there whether you like them or not; your child cannot do anything about his basic nature and neither can you. Ignoring this will not make those irritating qualities or behaviors go away; it will simply drive your child to other sources for whatever you don’t provide.
I don’t have any problem admitting that I would do any number of things differently if I were raising my six children today. I wish I’d had the benefit of astrology; it would have changed my tactics in a plethora of ways if I’d had that insider information about what made each of them tick. Maybe they would have fewer hang-ups and be happier today if I had, who knows? Clearly that is water over the dam at this point, but perhaps I can improve some of my karma by sharing this information mingled with my experience.
Aries children are so full of energy that they'll wear you out just watching them. If you recall the old comic strip, Dennis the Menace, there is little doubt in my mind that he was a little Aries.
Channeling all this raw Fire Sign energy into positive activities is absolutely essential. That energy is going to be expressed one way or another so it's in your best interest to direct it accordingly. Independence is another challenge to the parent of an Aries child. When they're knee-high to a grasshopper they'll wander off without a backward glance, not afraid of a thing. If you've seen parents in the mall with their toddler harnessed to a leash, there's a good chance that child has an Aries Sun, Moon, or Ascendant. They are impulsive and fearless, and having a child with those traits can mean numerous premature grey hairs for mom and dad.
