A Sagittarian child is spontaneous, fun, and feisty. They're friendly with everyone and never meet a stranger.

A Sagittarian Child's Personality Traits

Validating your child's Sun sign tells a child, "I see who you are, and I support you." For a Sagittarius child's Sun's to shine brightly, they need to wonder, wander, explore, and adventure. Parents of a Sagittarian child need a watchful eye and a keen sense of humor. Theirs is a happy-go-lucky, playful, and funny child who knows no boundaries and will always keep them on their toes.

A Sagittarius Child Is Restless and Adventurous

The world of a Sagittarian child is full of new foods to eat, people to meet, games to play, words to understand, places to visit, and concepts to master. They are restless and adventurous kids who seldom consider the consequences. This is how a Sagittarius child learns about the world and life. Still, their restless style of exploration can be risky. The most important thing for the parents of a Sagittarius child to remember is to keep them safe while not breaking their spirit.

A Sagittarius Baby

When a Sagittarius baby is born, the adventure for both parent and child begins. From birth, a Sagittarius baby feels the call of the wild. They enjoy being carried around in a sling, riding in a car or stroller, and going everywhere. They're not fearful of strangers and feel safe being with mom and dad. They smile, coo, and gurgle when happy, but they are demanding infants who will cry and scream loudly when upset or bored.

A Sagittarius Toddler

If Sagittarius children are awake, they're on the move. They tend to set off exploring as soon as they can crawl. When they become a toddler, mom and dad are likely to be chasing after them non-stop. These restless kids will bravely touch, taste, smell, climb over, poke at, take apart, watch, listen, and go anywhere and do anything. A Sagittarian toddler can be a challenge for parents. They are rambunctious, and temper tantrums are frequent. They'll rebel against being confined in a playpen, a high chair, and being held.

Parents can allow them freedom within a larger safe area by using baby gates. They can also allow a Sagittarian toddler the freedom to move about while safely tethered if they use a safety harness and leash when they take their child out and about.

A Sagittarius Child Is a Dare Devil

A Sagittarius child is an exuberant "all in" kid. When they get excited about something, they throw all their energy into it. For example, once they learn to ride a bike, they're not going to simply peddle along. A Sagittarius child will do wheelies, ride without their hands, and find out how fast they can go. That's a bit reckless, considering that Sagittarian kids are also a bit clumsy.

A Sagittarius Child Is Messy

A Sagittarius child can be like a whirlwind of activity. The last thing they think of is making their bedroom clean and tidy. Sagittarian children can be messy slobs when it comes to their personal space. A parent can nag or give their Sagittarian child a compelling reason to pick things up and get organized. Still, it may be that a Sagittarian child never gets the concept of putting anything away after finishing with it. Probably the best solution to a Sagittarian child's rumpled room is as simple as closing the door.

A Sagittarius Child Is Mentally Active

A Sagittarius child is sharp, intelligent, and mentally active. They are intrigued by life and want to know as much as possible. Parents need to show them how much fun it can be to look up answers to their questions in books and on the internet. Then provide them bookshelves, their own computer and a desk where they can spend many fun and meaningful hours answering the big questions of life.

A Sagittarius Child Is Imaginative

Sagittarius kids are talkers and storytellers with fantastic imaginations. They are prone to exaggerate, dream up the most amusing stories, and blur the line between fantasy and reality. Although this can be concerning for a parent with an older Sagittarius child, who's likely to embellish the truth, it's essential to allow them to enjoy and perfect their natural storytelling skills.

A Sagittarius Child Is Popular

Outgoing, adventurous, and full of energy, a Sagittarius child is usually popular because they are so much fun to be around. They're generous with their friends, and they don't mind playing the fool and clowning around in school. They also participate in many school activities. They love sports and are often involved in team sports because of the comradery.

A Sagittarius Child Is Truthful

Even when it would have been better for them to keep their mouth shut, Sagittarian children are quick to tell the truth or speak precisely what they're thinking, even when it's hurtful. However, they also have a habit of embellishing the truth because it makes a better story.

A Sagittarius Child Is Optimistic

Ruled by the planet Jupiter, Sagittarius kids are naturally confident, optimistic, expansive, and exuberant. These are wonderful traits unless it involves risk-taking. These kids are often so sure that everything will turn out positively, they fail to consider any negative consequence. Thankfully they are lucky kids who tend to bounce back and try again when things go wrong. It takes a lot to dampen a Sagittarian child's fiery spirit.

A Sagittarius Teenager Is Opinionated

A teenage Sagittarian has already developed many of their own thoughts and opinions about life. This is a critical time when a parent needs to consider how much space they give their Sagittarian teen to be an individual whose actions, thoughts, and opinions differ from their own.

Raising a Sagittarius Child

A happy, optimistic Sagittarian child can be a delight to raise, but it's not all fun and games. Below are some quick tips that can make raising a Sagittarian child easier.

Be Their Friend

A good rule of thumb for a Sagittarian child's parent is to always talk to them like they're a friend.

Keep Them Active

Sagittarius kids are explorers. It's essential to keep them actively, physically, or mentally involved in a sport or some other challenging activity of their choice.

Spend Time With Them

Sagittarius children are independent, but they still crave parental attention. Parents should make time to interact with a Sagittarian child and plan for activities they'll both enjoy.

Set Rules

Sagittarius kids do not like rules, but they need rules and boundaries. A parent will find them more compliant if they explain the logic and reason behind the rules.

Using Your Child's Sun Sign

The Sun in a child's birth chart horoscope defines who they are becoming. A Sagittarius child needs their parents to recognize, validate, and support their "this is who I am" astrological Sun energy. Doing this says to the child, "it's OK to be who you are." Although some parents will need to hold their breath and restrain themselves, it essential that parents of a Sagittarius child never stifle their exuberant, fiery, and adventurous spirit.
