Aries' Planet: ♂ Mars.
Impulsive, impatient, actively exploring the world around them, an Aries child needs extra attention from birth. From the earliest days of life, this little representative of the Zodiac sign demonstrates the innate energy, determination, and uncompromising nature instilled in them. Over time, the Aries child becomes the main instigator among their peers and a pioneer capable of inspiring others with their bold ideas!
The Aries Infant
Endowed with an insatiable curiosity and a passion for new experiences, the Aries baby will bring a fair share of excitement into their parents' lives. Managing the bursting energy and curiosity of this little fidget will require an ample dose of patience.
An Aries child is exceptionally demanding and communicates their needs with loud crying. While a multitude of toys thoughtfully hung over the crib can initially capture their attention, more serious precautions should be considered over time.
An Aries child often outpaces their peers in physical activity. They start crawling and using baby walkers earlier than other children, trying to reach the most secluded places and investigate the contents of all cupboards. From a very young age, an Aries child shows a desire for freedom and overcoming obstacles, in tandem with a categorical rejection of any limitations. Bearing this in mind, make sure to move valuable and potentially harmful objects out of reach in advance to protect the young explorer from mishaps.
Raising an Aries Child
Be prepared for the fact that as soon as the growing Aries child masters speech and senses their independence, they will become even more unpredictable, decisive, and fearless. At the same time, they are extremely sensitive to adult's categorical remarks.
If parents attempt to stop their offspring's climb up a steep staircase or initiate a revolt against their disliked porridge in an ultimatum manner, the response will be a furious defense of their violated rights. However, this does not mean that an Aries child is uncontrollable.
Parents can achieve an understanding with an Aries child through firmness, complimented by affection and friendly interaction. Born with a belief in their own uniqueness, a little Aries needs adoration and recognition. They are impervious to force and harsh reprimands, but love and convincing logical arguments work unfailingly, turning the little rebel into a compliant, agreeable child.
Alongside their straightforwardness, which can seem a bit rough, an Aries child is extremely sentimental and sensitive. Their flashes of discontent often and suddenly give way to floods of touching tenderness, and their firmness and assertiveness curiously coexist with naive dreaminess and wild imagination.
From a young age, it's necessary to instill diligence and patience in an Aries child. Despite their aspiration for leadership, boundless energy, and activity, they often lack persistence in achieving their goals. By accustoming this Zodiac sign to discipline from an early age, you will help them develop a goal-oriented, persistent character.
To channel the excessive energy of an Aries child into a useful course, introduce them to sports and physical culture. A little Aries easily engages in team games, quickly imbued with a spirit of competition and a thirst for victory.
From a young age, an Aries child is resolute and firm in their intentions and desires. If your child flatly refuses to draw, preferring to play football, arguing and persuading them is pointless. By encouraging the self-expression of an Aries child, you will manage to soften the egoism and dominance characteristic of adults of this Zodiac sign who were raised by authoritarian parents.
An Aries Child in Interaction with Peers
In the circle of friends, an Aries child is an undeniable leader. They decide which game the entire group will play, allocate roles, and meticulously monitor the rules' observance.
The idyll lasts only as long as the children follow instructions and do not dispute their right to primacy. But as soon as friends reject the idea proposed by the little Aries or question their absolute leadership, a real storm is coming. Charm and generosity instantly evaporate, giving way to despair. At such moments, the Aries child needs support and consolation, but while comforting your child, tell them about the need to be tolerant of others, be kind and responsive.
An Aries Child in Studies
Due to their characteristic hyperactivity, an Aries child finds it difficult to sit still and monotonously absorb knowledge. However, they have a very lively inquisitive mind and a remarkable memory. In early childhood, they are fond of books with colorful illustrations and fairy tales, and a tendency towards fantasies and sincere belief in miracles often remain with them even in adulthood.
Hardly starting to talk, little Aries bombards adults with numerous questions: "how?", "what?", "why?". However, in school life, they may simply get bored, which will inevitably affect their academic performance.
While effortlessly memorizing information, the Aries child often jettisons the ballast of knowledge that does not interest them. Sometimes this trait prevents them from thoroughly mastering a subject and achieving heights in a specific niche. Nevertheless, by familiarizing an Aries child with systematic intellectual work from childhood and teaching them to focus, you will lay a solid foundation that will allow them to successfully pursue a career in their favorite field.
Stimulating an Aries student with criticism and admonitions is a waste of time. You can only motivate them by appealing to their infamous desire to always be first and constantly prove something. Propose a bet to them, show that you believe in them, and they will hurry to please you with their successes.
In adolescence and youth, the desire for independence acquires an even more expressive character in the young Aries and is supported by periodic bouts of rebellion. They are eager to break into adult life as quickly as possible, without wasting time studying at a college or university. At this stage, the impulsiveness and activity characteristic of this zodiac sign can play a cruel joke. But if parents have managed to instill consistency and focus on the result in an Aries child, by this time, they will have determined their life purpose and will later impress with astonishing achievements.
Courage, assertiveness, vivacity of character are inherent in both boys and girls born under the sign of Aries. An Aries child is not meek, being in constant motion, which necessarily involves close ones. They have amazing charm and are capable of inspiring others for bold actions, and their endless energy, being in a creative channel, brings success and admiration from those around them!
