The Pisces child may seem to assume the role of parent and guru in the manner of their understanding of the world at such a young age and you will be aware of their power and knowledge early on in their life.
This understanding is pure and comes from a deeply caring part of them. They know how to love without being taught. They know how to share without instruction and compassion. You'll see a tear trickle down their cheek at the moment they spy even the dumbest of creatures suffering.
Young Pisces need to feel that he or she belongs to someone, and preferably more than one person. Emotional connections for your Pisces child are absolutely essential and they may even attach themselves to animals for that connectedness.
They have a love of the outdoors and all animals, large or small. Giving them a pet for their birthday will make their life complete. This will bring out their best flavour and also teach you the true meaning of love and affection.
Pisces children absorb information and ideas much as a sponge soaks up water. They should however be taught to sort their ideas into what is practical and what is not. Pisces children need continual grounding.
Discipline will be difficult if you are the parent as their highly sensitive nature makes them prone to withdrawing from the world around them. If they feel that they are being unfairly punished, this could become a serious issue for them and for you also.
A Pisces child should be helped to believe in him or herself and prevented from becoming too clinging. Parents who cling to their Pisces child are doing him or her no good at all. Because of their passive, non-aggressive natures they may become a target for a bully so these children should also be taught strategies for dealing with this sort of situation.
You may find the Pisces child looking as though their mind is off floating in the wide blue sky, but this is their way of zoning out and allowing the subtle forces of nature to flow through them. If you do see this happening, don't startle them out of their reverie.
Allow them their special moments to connect and balance themselves but also encourage them to participate in sport or other hobbies that may interest them. Some simple routines should be taught otherwise Pisces may become spoilt and will dominate the home with his or her changing desires.
