Chinese Zodiac for Kids and Parents

Expecting a bundle of joy in 2016? Read all about his or her Chinese Zodiac

Published on: March 01, 2013

What does the Chinese zodiac have to tell us about our children — and how best to parent them?

Every mindful parent seeks to provide his or her child with the best (and most self-aware) support and guidance possible. The process of parenting inevitably brings us closer to better understanding ourselves — our expectations, our unrealized potentials, our greatest gifts, our most profound joys and sorrows.

Whether you view astrology as a form of entertainment  or an illuminating system of symbols that reveals the essence of character, it can represent a valuable tool to parents in assessing aptitudes, affinities, and blind spots — both as they manifest in their offspring and within themselves.

To discover more about your child's personality and natural gifts, locate his or her date of birth and corresponding Chinese zodiac sign in the table below — read your own profile to see if you recognize the child within you!

May the year ahead bring you luck!
