Libra parents are fair-minded, reasonable, kind
and affectionate. They share their love equally among their
offspring, administer discipline even-handedly and never allow
their bigger children to bully or take advantage of the smaller
ones. They tend to treat their children as adults, asking
their opinions and advice from an early age, never patronising
or being condescending towards them. They are generous to
a fault and have a tendency to spoil their youngsters.
Despite her easy-going approach to her family,
Libra mother can be quite firm if the occasion demands it.
She may infuriate her children, on occasions, by refusing
to make a decision ‘until Dad comes home’. She
may give in too easily to requests for a new toy or a special
privilege in order to keep the peace. But whatever she does
will be for the best of reasons and will be weighed up carefully
– probably too carefully – before she goes ahead.
Libra father will also think long and hard before
coming to any serious conclusions about the treatment or upbringing
of his offspring. However, once he does, his mind is made
up, sometimes to the point of being over-judgmental or downright
critical. He encourages his children to find their own path
through life and to develop at their own speed and in their
Libra parents tend not to display their
emotions to their children, although they are quite happy
to discuss them in rational and objective terms. They enjoy
family life and throw wonderful children’s parties.
