The parenting skills of those born under the sign of the Archer may be influenced by a slight reluctance to acknowledge fatherhood or motherhood at first. Their love of freedom, independence,and adventure might make them balk at the thought of being tied down by children and all their accompanying responsibilities.
But once the reality of parenting sets in, Sagittarius mommies and daddies can make quite good parents. Even better, their vast store of energy and sense of adventure can spell out enthusiastic rearing techniques, which means plenty of outdoor sessions with their beloved offspring. Camping, biking, sports meets, picnics at the park, dog-walking, etc., are just some of the expected childhood activities of those with Sagittarian parents.
A child’s stages of development can also prove to be a big adventure in itself for a Sagittarius mama or papa. Watching them grow up, start talking, walking, and developing psycho-motor skills at their own pace can cause great pride and anxiety. Their own sense of independence could be their yardstick for their kids’ achievements and aspirations. It’s understandable for a Sagittarius to want to get their kids involved in as many activities as is humanly possible, which is great. However, a Sagittarius mom or dad should take care not to push their children into doing physical activities they might not be ready for, or are enthusiastic about. Doing so could cause frustration and ill-will for both parent and child.
The key is not to make too many demands on the child, and always communicate on how they feel about doing certain things. As a rule, Sagittarius parents are generally permissive folks and do not feel the need to hem their children in with strict rules and regulations. In fact, they prize individuality in their kids in pretty much the same way they prize theirs. Knowing the value of learning from personal experience means having kids who end up making their own decisions and not being too sheltered or spoiled.
Travel is another thing that’s sure to be part and parcel of a Sagittarius parent’s method of child-rearing. Beyond acknowledging one’s wanderlust, travel means soaking up other cultures and learning beyond classroom walls. Whether it’s a new language, tradition, cuisine, or just about anything involving the customs of another group of people, a Sagittarian is sure to introduce their child to it by way of tours, trips, and journeys. Very young kids of Sagittarius mommies and daddies could already be exposed to books that speak of other cultures and exotic places, and eventually, maps, atlases and travel and guide books that could inspire in them a sense of adventure and exploration, as well.
Sagittarius people are highly capable of becoming great parents because it is a job they will not take half-heartedly. Just like the next great adventure, parenting is something they would want to thoroughly explore and learn from.
