Some people swear that your astrological sign can tell you things about your future love life or financial success. But the real benefit to knowing your sign is how much it can tell you about the type of parent you are. Here's what your astrological sign says about your parenting style.
You're smart and good at coming up with original ideas, making you the one kids flock to for a bedtime story or help with a school project. You have a habit of pulling away from people, so you have no qualms about taking some time for yourself away from your kids when you feel like you need a break.
You're sensitive, compassionate and kind, making you the parent your kids always come to when they have a boo-boo that needs kissing. They also know you're a easy mark for getting an extra cookie or another episode of Doc McStuffins. Your selfless nature and dislike for upsetting others makes you a potential mommy martyr, so don't be afraid to ask for a break from parenting duties when you need one.
You're adventurous and quick-witted, making you a huge hit with the tween sect. You love a last minute day trip and think children who curse are hilarious and should be encouraged. You're quick-tempered and sometimes impatient. Your deepest, darkest secret is that you didn't love the newborn phase.
Your tendency to be inflexible makes you the parent your kid does not to be the first to see his report card. But your extreme patience and reliability means your the one your adult child will call in the middle of the night if the car breaks down or they don't know how to reset the modem.
Your duel nature means you're good at adapting to the unexpected demands of parenting, like a mid-aisle diaper blow out or finding out at 10 pm that you have to make cupcakes for the bake sale tomorrow. Your capacity for being very cunning means your children are afraid of you every April Fool's Day.
You're emotional and overprotective, making you a prime candidate for moving to the town where your child attends college. Love You Forever is your favorite children's book, you find it sweet and not at all creepy that a mom would climb in her adult son's window at night.
You were super popular in school so naturally you expect your children to follow in your footsteps and have a hard time understanding the term "shy". You don't just attend the PTA meetings, you run them like a boss.
You're a worrier who's always insisting on your kids wearing hats, scarfs, gloves and boots the instant the temperature dips below forty degrees. Your desire for everything to look perfect allows you to pull off even the most elaborate Pinterest crafts with ease.
You're easygoing and fair, so it falls to you to mediate any fights between your kids. You rarely yell, preferring to reason with your children when they are misbehaving, and when that fails, you use time out.
You're focused and passionate, making you the quintessential stage parent. Whether your kid does a somersault you see it as a sign to jump into the world of competitive cheerleading. You vowed to get your son into a Division One hockey school after their first attempt on skates. You know your kid can be the best and you're not going to let anyone stand in their way.
You're outgoing and energetic, which makes you the parent who's always happy to host sleepovers, though your propensity for flightiness means your partner might get stuck planning some of the details. Your straightforwardness and honesty makes you easy to talk to about difficult subjects, so try not to be too smug when you're privy to all the high school gossip and your friends are complaining about how their teenagers never talk to them.
You're practical, careful and prudent, meaning your the parent who intimates all the other parents at daycare because you always seem to have everything together. You never forget to pack the diaper bag and you even have bandages and antibacterial wipes with you on the playground. Your patient nature means you'll be the one your kids come to for help with their math homework and your tendency towards moodiness means your sullen teenager will have they feel actually understands them.
