Scorpio children, given half a chance, will
take over the running of the family and expect everyone to
dance to their tune. They need to be disciplined from an early
age and taught that life is a matter of compromise, or else
they are liable to grow into inflexible adults, convinced
that their attitudes, beliefs and ways of doing things are
Little Scorpios have a deep-rooted need for
privacy and, at the same time, the ability to uncover the
rest of the family’s secrets. Their tendency to bottle
things up means that they need to be encouraged to share their
feelings and talk over problems. Whatever their interests,
they are liable to pursue them to the point of obsession.
If another child upsets them or breaks their toys, they will
wait patiently to get their revenge.
At school, they are brighter than average, with
an impressive knack for unravelling the most complex problem.
They are very ambitious and need a project or goal which holds
their attention totally. They also have vast reserves of energy
which can be put to good use on the playing fields, in the
gym, or even on the dance floor. They are passionate about
winning and need to be taught how to lose with style. Their
fascination with the opposite sex will start at an early age.
These are not children who can be persuaded
to do anything against their will. Only by being totally honest
and using intelligent reasoning will their parents or teachers
be able to win them round to their way of thinking.
