Capricorn kids are boys and girls born around 22 December to 20 January.
Capricorn kids are serious and mature, and are more comfortable as adults than as kids. They have a difficult time having fun with their peers, and derive more fun in completing their tasks and homeworks, rather than playing. These kids can easily communicate with older children and adults, with whom they can discuss at a relatively mature level. Being mature beyong their age, they are reliable, and have a natural sense of duty. These kids are responsible, and tend to assume blame for failures when things do not work out - even when they do not merit discredit.
These children, born with Sun in Capricorn, tend to look and even behave younger when they age, especially after 30 years. It is very important to be gentle with them, as these 'grown-up' kids are extremely sensitive, contrary to their adult-like behaviour. Judgemental remarks or harsh treatments from parents, older siblings, or teachers tend to leave lifetime scars. They need more affection than usually anticipated, and require to be loved for what they are, and not how they behave. Depression is a major problem for a Capricorn child, and being driven by perfectionism, they can get very disappointed when they cannot achieve it.
These kids are practical, ambitious, hard-working and also self-disciplined, and put themselves on a schedule even if they are not provided any routine. They like to build and construct things, and love playthings that mimic grown-up tools and activities. They are naturally attracted to calculators, computers, and tools used by adults, and would find ways to make the best use of whatever is available. These kids love anything that is old and traditional, or associated with rituals. They also love decorating and planning, especially when it comes to planning for a vacation.
Capricorn kids adore power, and enjoy when they are in command or management roles. They can be delegated much responsibility, and need to be provided with age-appropriate assignments that feed their sense of power. They are objective and not too emotional, and can be trusted to baby-sit, cook, and even help with family business or manage household activities.
They must be taught to respect emotions from a tender age, explaining its importance to be successful and responsible in life. These kids also earn the value of money from an early age, and are very good with their money. However, they need to be taught to wield power and use it for a good cause, and to balance material aims with spiritual values. They tend to get frustrated when they are not in charge, or when they are not doing something constructive. They should be taught patience, and to enjoy their childhood. Anger, negative thinking, criticism, and complaining are also common misdirections of their energies - and should be nipped in the bud should they appear.
