Love is essential to all children, but never more so than to the young Sagittarian. However, it must be delivered in a certain way. Leave any possessiveness and ‘smother love’ at the door because your Sagittarian child will react much better to encouragement and showing your pleasure in simply having them in your life.
A Sagittarian child will hide their hurts, disappointments and sorrows behind a spirited belief that everything will get better eventually. They can be seen as the clown who laughs while their heart is breaking. These restless, freedom-loving children need a lot of room to play in and tend to get more bumps and bruises than others because they are rarely still and always off on some adventure, whether real or imaginary.
The Sagittarian child will be popular at school because they are kind, generous and will look after the underdog, which is their sense of social justice coming to the fore. They are usually intelligent, quick-witted and catch on before many of their peers. The faster they learn the lessons for the day, the sooner they can head off on some exploit or another to learn new things.
From the first day they are on this Earth they are eager to get going and are restless little individuals, but they do need a disciplined regime to help them get ready for life as a whole. They need mental stimulation but also the opportunity to explore many hobbies and sports until they settle on what works for them.
The Sagittarian child is competitive and can be a little bossy with their peers, so they need to be trained from an early age in the process of give and take. This will stand them in good stead as they grow and become balanced and self-fulfilled adults.
Because Sagittarians have the notion of ‘bigger, biggest, best’ in their attitudes, this can also flow over into their food habits, which could mean weight gain problems if their diet is unbalanced and too rich in sweets. Although they need lots of energy to get through their days, watch their diets and teach them as they grow older how to eat properly.
Sagittarian children are constantly asking questions. As they get older they will not see any reason why they shouldn’t question adult views and what they see as hypocrisy in some opinions. The best thing that parents of a Sagittarian child can do is be totally honest with them.
