Sweet Closeness - Leo parent & Libra child
A born people-pleaser, your Libra child wants nothing more than to make you happy -- which isn't difficult, because you adore him down to his little toes. In turn, he admires your bright personality, your generosity, and your courage. You're both naturally attuned to beauty and love being in crowds of fun-loving people, so be sure to take your little one out as much as possible to visit art galleries, museums, botanical gardens, and more.
Parties and playdates are also fun for you both, but keep an eye on your little Libra if he's playing with a rough or aggressive child. Your little one doesn't do well with conflict. Of course, if you see him tangling with a bully, your protective nature kicks in immediately! An affectionate and sentimental parent, you give your little Libra just the kind of sweet closeness he needs.
About the Libra Child: A Lover, Not a Fighter
Whenever there's tension in the house, your Libra son or daughter will switch into peacemaker mode. Libra children want everyone to get along, and conflict distresses them. If they're born into a noisy, expressive family, they'll have to learn to assert themselves in the midst of it, which can be very difficult for children of this sign.
In general, harmony is a primary concern of Libra children, and they'll do what they can to ensure it. This includes being affectionate with their parents, siblings, and friends.
Libra children instinctively understand the old saying about drawing flies with honey. They're sweet and naturally polite, but their urge to please everyone can lead to difficulties.
They may be indecisive -- worried that any decision they make could offend someone or cause hurt feelings. They also have a hard time stating their opinion in an assertive way, which means they could let their friends run all over them as they try to accommodate everyone.
On the brighter side, their innate social skills and strong sense of justice make them a fine friend. They also have a well-developed sense of balance and refined tastes even at an early age.
Natural negotiators, Libra children excel in bringing people together, creating compromise and seeking cooperation rather than conflict. As the parent of a Libra child, your job will include teaching him -- gently! -- that occasional disagreements are a natural, unavoidable part of life. Help him build his self-confidence and realize that being opinionated and assertive aren't the same as being offensive.
