Chinese-New-Year-2019

As parents, we always strive to do what is best for our kids. We are continuously seeking guidance from parenting books, reputable websites, teachers, doctors, friends, etc. on how to help our child grow and develop with confidence and a strong sense of self. This is especially true when we are expecting a new baby. I know I couldn’t devour enough information to help me prepare for each of my kids. 

By knowing more about our children and how they are wired, we can hopefully parent them better. The Chinese zodiac can be used to find out more about your child's personality and their natural gifts.

If you are expecting a child in 2019, you may be able to find out more about them already, before they are even born! Chinese New Year begins on February 5, 2019, and children born during this year will be natives of the sign of the pig, or the female earth pig (also called the year of the Brown Pig since brown is connected to the earth.) It is the 2,716th Chinese year. (Note if you are expecting before February 5, your child will be born in the prior Chinese year of the dog.) 

According to the site KarmaWeather, 2019 is a good year for the birth of a child in the family and that a child born in the year of the pig will be intelligent, have a pleasant nature and see the positive side of every situation. A pig child may not always show it but will be in great need of his parents' love.

Whether you believe in astrology or just want to find out more for entertainment purposes, here is the Chinese zodiac time table. Simply locate your child’s birth year (and your own) and see if you learn something.
