Every sun sign has a set of personality traits. If you are fascinated by astrology and often seek guidance through this medium, why limit it only to the grown-ups? Imagine how easy it would be to deal with babies if you’d know their personality traits. The trick to gauge your child’s personality can make it so easy to deal with unwanted situations, or avoid them altogether!
If your child is born between December 21 and January 21, she/he belongs to the tenth zodiac sign, Capricorn. Don’t be fooled by the slightly ferocious stature of the horned goat that represents this sun sign; Capricorns, in fact, are known for being extremely grounded, sensitive and at the same time, confident, and intelligent. Read on to know some more personality traits of Capricorn babies.
Personality Traits of a Capricorn Child
Curiosity killed the cat, but not a Capricorn child! That’s because Capricorn babies are curious by nature and intelligent too. Here are some more personality traits a Capricorn child is most likely to possess.
1. She/He Is Excellent at Adapting
A Capricorn child will adapt to most situations you’d think he wouldn’t like. That’s a great quality because they might just take some pressure off of you by adapting to the most difficult things. You will probably have no trouble weaning them on to solid foods or getting them used to certain foods at all. Table manners, potty training, and everything else will seem like a piece of cake if you have a Capricorn child. Likewise, schooling, homework and building good habits also won’t be any trouble for you. Of course, children being themselves, they won’t accept everything at the first go, but a Capricorn child’s personality is such that they will adapt to anything new in no time at all!
2. They Are Often Mistaken As the Underdogs
Capricorn babies can surprise everyone by accomplishing something that was thought to be out of their league. That’s because they never give up. They find it easy to be persistent and often chase their goals until they achieve it. What interests them is always close to them, and they are quite stubborn about it too. So, no compromises there. They are not preachers per se, but they do stick to their principles and seldom go against them. This brings us to another trait a Capricorn child usually has.
3. She/He Is Ambitious
The never-give-up attitude that Capricorn babies have makes them very ambitious, especially if it concerns their favourite things or their closest dreams. It will be very difficult for you to divert them or change their mind. Also, only the closest of people will know what they are ambitious about. Their persistence and focus, as mentioned early, can help them go to any limits to achieve their goals.
4. She/He Is an Old Soul
The reason why a Capricorn child is considered an old soul is because she/he is often quiet, throws no tantrums and comes across as a mature and well-behaved child. The tiny tots belonging to this sun sign can be complete angels when it comes to changing diapers, feeding and even while training them during their growth years. Their calm nature will put anyone at ease. Also, when life throws something unpredictable at them, they are the first ones to accept and adapt.
5. They Are Perfectionists
Children belonging to this sun sign like keeping their things perfect. Their homework will always be done, their books will be well maintained, their handwriting will be perfect, and if they are old enough, their rooms will also be clean and uncluttered. Are you tempted to take advantage of this situation? Well, make sure you do it smartly, or even better, not do it all, because a Capricorn child can also smell your intentions!
6. She/He Is Quite Predictable
Once you know how your Capricorn child deals with certain things, it will become quite easy for you to predict his/her next move. This will ring true for those parents who have won their child’s trust and confidence. Otherwise, it is challenging to gauge what’s going on in their heads.
7. They Are Attention Seekers
Just like every other child, Capricorn babies want to be loved too. They are often perceived as being needy and would do anything to grab your attention. If your personalities do not match, it can be quite difficult to give the time they demand. Thus, setting expectations about how much attention is enough will take some time and effort.
8. They Are Quite Self-Sufficient
If you have a Capricorn child, you will thank your stars one day, because as much as a Capricorn child is adaptable, she/he is quite self-sufficient too. Of course, no child learns to be self-sufficient in the womb; you will have to teach them slowly and steadily. But, with a Capricorn child, you’ll be surprised by how quickly your child picks up certain things. Teach them to make their own bed, do their homework, sort their toys and keep them away after playing or even how to make a sandwich; they will pick it up and will require very few reminders.
9. She/He Can Come Across As a Loner
A Capricorn child doesn’t make contact with strangers easily. She/he will be seen doing things all by herself/himself. Because of this trait, a Capricorn child can come across as a loner. They would have to be encouraged to join group activities, and they can be great friends too, but only with the people they trust. If you want them to open their hearts, you really have to win their trust. A Capricorn child often comes across as shy and timid, but that’s not how she/he is on the inside. You’d see them avoiding every noisy gathering or event, or staying in a corner all by themselves because, by nature, they love quiet and peace.
10. They Make for Good Leaders
Personality traits like sensitivity, intelligence, curiosity, self-sufficiency and adaptability can help Capricorn babies become great leaders. They can also become good advisers and manage tricky situations. Your child may have these qualities very early in life and begin demonstrating them at school. She/he could nominate himself and perform exceptionally as the monitor or a group leader.
Tips on Raising a Capricorn Child
Now that you have understood the personality traits that most Capricorn babies posses, here are some tips that will help you raise a Capricorn child.
- Appreciate and praise them only for the right things they do. They are attention seekers and can tend to be self-absorbed too. Its always better to train them to be okay when there’s nobody to give them the attention they crave.
- Their introvert nature could affect their self-esteem. As a parent, you need to help build your Capricorn child’s confidence, which will help them immensely in their life.
- Although Capricorns are independent and self-sufficient by nature, parental guidance is much required to tell them the difference between good and bad. Always ensure you encourage them to do the right thing.
- Be sensitive towards the dreams and goals of a Capricorn child as they are very close to his/her heart.
- Fuel their intelligence. Give them tasks that make them think and find a solution. This will increase their confidence and help them become independent early on.
- Encourage them to lead because a large part of their personality makes them want to stay alone. It might take some time for them to understand that a true leader walks with the team and never alone.
