Aries Child Traits, Personality, & Characteristics
What other personality traits can you anticipate in an Aries child?
As the first zodiac sign Aries is born with all the traits of leadership. Even as babies, Aries children have a natural tendency to take over the house.
They will make the rules if you let them.
These children who would be kings and queens do not tolerate anyone speaking down to them and their minds are bright lights so clear communication can be very helpful in the parent/Aries child relationship.
They truly do want to understand your thinking and once they grasp the particulars you’ll get far more collaboration from them.
Aries children certainly have a flair for the dramatic – your living room will become a stage for numerous stories and performances.
And speaking of applause…
Aries kids like rewards of any kind be it a compliment or a special treat at the mall. There’s no need to create a Veruca Salt wannabe but this star sign craves more applause than other zodiac kids.
So, break out the ‘good jobs’ for important achievements – particularly in behavior.
These little Rams are incredibly determined but also easily frustrated. Once they encounter obstructions they’re likely to throw up their hands and lose interest.
When this happens you’ll have no question as to why. They are very verbal and direct emotionally charged statements like arrows.
The “Temperamental Twos” doesn’t even begin to describe the toddler years. Maybe top off that Starbucks with some Bailey’s or Kahlua?
And while your child doesn’t mean for his or her words to be weapons, you may find yourself unwittingly hurt by the assault.
However, there is hope!
Being the first sign of the zodiac means there is a hidden diplomat in your Aries. So take a deep breath, give you and your child a 20 count, then re-approach the situation with the goal of helping them connect to their more emissary. Doing so can help cultivate them a more productive coping mechanism to try in the future.
Despite this child’s fiery nature, they like to learn.
Over time their life lessons take hold and transform them into rather wonderful, fun people who are incredibly truthful with a strong sense of integrity.
You’ll also see a great sense of humor emerge as they develop.
Finally, the Aries child is high-energy but low-coordination. They move so fast as to fall over their own feet (or anything in their path).
Getting them involved in sports or dance (anything physical) can help them learn how to stay vertical while their little bodies play catch up to their Speed Racer minds.
The Aries Girl
As the parents of an Aries gal get ready to walk on the wild side!
This star sign’s confidence and thirst for risks and adventure often lands them in trouble. And woe to you should you try to supervise her. Be ready to receive a very effective “evil eye” that communicates her indignation without a word.
Your Aries daughter is not a conventional child, nor will she become a conformist adult. She will be fierce about her independence no matter how many times you tell her the danger inherent in her last big adventure.
Before this all sounds overwhelming, also know that your daughter has a lot of potential. Directing her energy positively can take her ambition and fashion an impressive trailblazer in nearly any future to which she puts her mind.
An Aries girl will undoubtedly have favorite game – Follow the Leader with HER at the head of the pack! Aries’ love to give direction, sometimes becoming rather domineering. To help your daughter operate more from her Goddess energy than her Queen Maleficent energy get her to help you with decision making around the household. Maybe dub her the Official Cookie Contessa and let her decide what type of cookies will be on the family menu.
Your Ram-ette loves social settings. There’s just something in the Aries mind that knows how to put people together in such a way so that her team is the best (thanks, of course, to her guidance). An Aries girl can be even more prideful than a man and it can come out at those moments. Reinforcing the concept of solid team spirit can help her stay in the good graces of her peer group.
An intrinsic Aries trait is that they often goes off on lone escapades without any peers or parents to deter their natural need for speed. She loves pushing her boundaries and everyone else’s patience!
This is especially true in teen years. We do not envy parents to an Aries with a purpose who have to try and put their foot down. The Aries girl is not fond of rules.
Aries’ are, also, very innovative. They will find new ways of doing age-old things and get everyone else to play along.
The Aries girl has the soul of an inventor and she’ll often come up with very successful concepts. When you give her time and tools for pursuing those concepts she’ll be very happy and content. This has the additional benefit of harnessing some of that interminable energy effectively without conflict.
The Aries Boy
In the procession called life your Aries boy is always at the head of the line – instigating. He will never be a good follower and is not content to become anyone’s devotee.
Aries boys are generally healthy and strong from birth. Add little boy energy to the Aries characteristic of being incredibly active and there is no rest for a weary mom. This energy level may even begin with what seems to be non-stop womb action that feels like he’s training for the jungle gym.
The Aries boy is super conquest driven. He will probably love playing the Knight banishing the evil dragon only after a very long and strenuous chase. That said, the Aries sign is known for it creativity so this sun sign may very well decide to play the dragon vanquishing an Knight gone rogue!
The Ram in him likes a battle, but it has to be one worthy of their intellect and skills. Getting bed time on his terms is one such battle as are his chosen meals and preferred toys. Do not endeavor to tell an Aries what to think or do. It will fall on deaf ears or end up in a tug-of-war. This is not surprising when you consider that Mars rules the Aries personality.
What this means for the Aries parent is that finding healthy outlets for your son’s competitive nature can take the battle out of the home. Anything that’s a challenge does the trick provided they haven’t done the same thing too recently. The Aries boy often grows weary of projects half way through and quickly moves on to the next interesting or precarious adventure.
Aries boys are highly territorial. This can create power struggles in that he can easily see the whole world as his personal Pride Lands. Guidelines and boundaries might become your mantra so as to keep the ‘boss balance’ in check.
As your Aries boy moves into teen years and beyond there is a great surprise waiting for you. This is the time they often take their inspirational skills and use them in motivating change.
Once the process begins, Aries males move out of the way and start looking for another point of passion. In this, encourage your Aries to find friends with serious gumption and follow-through. That allows him to shine in the role he likes best, and his companions complete the vision.
