How to Raise Your Snake Kid

As said before, the complex personality of Snake children makes it impossible to guess how they’re feeling. Besides, they have the tendency to hide their emotions under a calm attitude. Their parents should always ask them questions.

Because they love loneliness too much, they can end up avoiding people, so they should be encouraged to collaborate with others as much as possible.

Their tastes are the most refined, so they need to be taken to museums and art galleries. The knowledge they gather there can help them greatly when they become adults, not to mention they may be convinced to pursue an artistic career.

Because they don’t talk about what stresses them, they may suffer from stomach problems sooner rather than later. In case they’re complaining about stomach pain, then they’re probably having some problems they don’t want to talk about.

In trying to identify these problems, their parents need to be patient and to ask all kinds of questions that seem like they’re not related at all to what they’re trying to find out.

Snake youngsters will never say directly what bothers them, so they have to be led to do it. In other words, they’re difficult to communicate with, just because they never reveal their thoughts and intentions.

It doesn’t matter how calm they may seem on the outside, inside they may hide an emotional struggle that would seem unbearable even for an adult.

Their refined tastes need to be developed, so they should be gifted good books, classical music CDs and drawing books. Anything artistic puts their mind to work.

When their parents pay more attention to their siblings or other children, they become very jealous because they think no one else besides themselves deserves to be loved. In such moments, they can harbor feelings of anger and start to ignore other people’s feelings. They should be given advice and be talked all the time because this way, they feel important and care for.
