Scorpio parents often appear autocratic and
over-demanding of their children. In fact, it is simply that
they expect the best of them, and want the best for them.
Because they have total faith in their own opinions, they
have no qualms in laying down the law. Being independent and
well-ordered themselves, and despite loving their children
with an intense passion, they still expect them to stand on
their own two feet.
Scorpio father tends to be strict and to have
a strong set of values which he passes on to his children.
He will stand up for them, but would prefer them to stand
up for themselves. The rules he lays down are not to be broken.
He enjoys playing with his offspring and is quite prepared
to indulge in a bit of fun and games, but there is never any
question about who is in charge.
Scorpio mother does not openly express
her devotion to her children, but they sense it, nonetheless.
She encourages them to develop their natural talents and to
be ambitious. She believes in them totally and may refuse
to hear anything against them, sometimes even from their father.
Scorpio parents’ desire to understand everything about
their youngsters sometimes means that they fail to allow them
sufficient space to be themselves. Ideally, they would like
them to think and act as they do. They may overdo the discipline,
but only because they are convinced it is in their children’s
interest to do so.
