Your Child's Best Personality Traits, Based On Their Zodiac Sign

By Laurel Elis

My mom recently told me that when she was pregnant with me, one thing about her due date filled her with dread: I was going to be born a Leo. She said she was so disappointed that she cried. Notoriously strong-willed and arrogant, Leos are not the easiest sign to parent, and my mom was fixated on all the negative characteristics of my sign. However, just like there are bad aspects of a person's sign, there are also some amazing qualities.

Each sign, guided by the stars and moon, has a series of innate traits that shine through in a person's life. While none of these are hard rules, they can operate as a helpful guide when parenting your child. Keep reading to see what kinds of sweet and heartwarming behaviors you can expect from your little ones based on their sign.
