Chinese New Year: The Year of the Rabbit

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

Every parent strives to provide their child with the best (and most self-aware) support possible, and that objective encourages a process of seeking guidance from many sources of wisdom, including doctors and other child-rearing experts, family and friends. By knowing more about our children and how they are wired, we can hopefully parent them better, right? The Chinese zodiac can be another useful and entertaining source to find out more about our children’s natural attributes and charms — and give us parents some intelligence about how best to raise them to achieve their full potential.

Lunar New Year begins on Jan. 22, and children born during this year will be under the sign of the Rabbit. As the sign representing longevity in Chinese mythology, the Rabbit is considered a most providential nativity: The Rabbit child is graced with good fortune and an assurance of happiness in life.

If you’re expecting a little Rabbit, congratulations! Kiddos born under the sign of the Rabbit are said to be kind, artistic, graceful, self-assured and intelligent. Read on to learn more about the many standout qualities of your wee Rabbit.

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!
