Being a parent is an art as well as a full-time career. Simply because a person can make a baby, or have a baby, does not automatically make them a good parent. Perhaps parenting should be a required course in school. It would make life a lot easier and happier for the little ones. The fact that thousands of children are abused physically, psychologically, and emotionally across socioeconomic lines really needs to be looked at.
Among the “lover forms” of the animal kingdom, offspring are nurtured, raised quickly, and sent off on their own. This is not the case with humans. Years – 18 to 21 of them, sometimes more – as well as money, have to be invested before a child, hopefully, becomes a successful adult.
In many of my personal consultations, the questions ultimately get around to loved ones – especially children. I’m often asked, “Why is it we can’t get along?” After devoting a number of years to this area of study, I’ve found that Numerology offers quick, simple, and logical explanations to the problem of disharmony in a parent / child relationship.
Take the case of a number 9 father. Men today have been taught to be strong and masculine, and not to cry. This philosophy is often passed on to their sons. If our number 9 father has a number 2 son, the two of them have opposite natures, as number 2 children are generally described as “crybabies.” They’re sensitive, emotional, and easily wounded. If a number 9 father doesn’t understand this, he may constantly demand that his son behave according to society’s rules.
To give a real life example, I have a client who was born on the 20th of the month, making her a number 2 person (2+0=2). Her mother was born on the 29th, another 2 person (2+9=11; 1+1=2). Furthermore, her father was born on the 2nd of the month, amazingly, another 2 person. The last family member was her brother, born on the 9th of the month. I explained that the common number running in the family line was 2, and that her brother broke the pattern by having a 9 – a direct opposition number to theirs. She confirmed this was true. Not only was he different and rebellious (a 9 attribute), but he had died at the age 20 (2+0=2) from an injury (another 9 trait).
Number 1 parent
If you were born on the 1st, 10th, 19th, or 28th of the month, being a good parent in your eyes is making sure you keep a roof over everyone’s head. But children are often emotional by nature. Since you tend to be more mental, don’t forget to express emotions in return. If your children were born on dates adding up to a 1, 4, or 9, chances are you’ll have harmony. Children born on 6 or 8 dates cause you concern because they tend to be emotional and practical in nature rather than mental like yourself.
Number 2 parent
Those born on the 2nd, 11th, 20th, and 29th of the month are generally described as nurturing mothers and fathers because of the Moon’s influence. Children born on dates adding up to 2, 7, or 6 are generally more harmonious. The reverse is true if your children were born on dates adding up to a 9. Keep in mind that the nature of the 9 is
to be aggressive, not gentle. Children born under the number 8 come in a close second.
Number 3 parent
If you were born on the 3rd, 12th, 21st and 30th of the month, you’re considered a 3 parent. Any children born under 3, 6, or 9 generally come closest to your heart. Since you’re generally ambitious you may find yourself trying to juggle your time between work and your family. If you have a child born on a 4 or 5 date, more time, attention, and understanding may be required. The 4 or 5 child may rub you the wrong way sometimes, but part of being a good parent is patience and understanding.
Number 4 parent
If you were born on either the 4th, 13th, 22nd, or 31st of the month, those children born on dates adding up to 4, 1, or 5 are the ones you tend to scold less. Because you may be easily swayed by moods, your offspring may not understand you. Those times when you’re in a good mood, take the initiative and explain to your children how you feel about them – they will certainly appreciate it. If you have a child or two born under a 6 or 8, a greater effort may have to be made to establish a balance of love and harmony between you. Ironically, the 6 child and 4 parents are somewhat alike – stubborn and slow to move, among other things. Because you’re inclined to see the negative reality of life, try not to discourage your 6 and 8 children before they have their time to grow.
Number 5 parent
Born on the 5th, 14th, or 23rd, you’re usually adaptable when it comes to dealing with children. Those who were born on the 5th, 14th, and 23rd may look like you, walk like you, and act like you. Children with birth numbers adding up to 6 or 9 come a close second. However, the children born under a 3 or 8 may create a generation gap. Make a greater effort to understand them more. After all, they belong to you too, and you have just as much responsibility to give them love, affection, and understanding as the rest.
Number 6 parent
If your date of birth is the 6th, 15th, or 24th of the month, you’re a 6 parent. Like the number 2 parent, you take easily to nurturing others. You easily adjust to whatever birth day children may have, especially those born on dates that add up to 6, 2, or 3. Children born under 4 or 1 may sometimes puzzle you. A 4 child is usually difficult to know. Many times they can’t explain their actions and behavior with others. You shouldn’t expect them to be as outgoing or gregarious as yourself, but do encourage 4 or 1 children to make the best of themselves now to prepare for adulthood later.
Number 7 parent
Were you born on the 7th, 16th, or 25th of the month? If so, you may find parenting somewhat stressful since the 7 by nature loves peace and quiet. However, there seems to be better harmony as your children get older and more settled. If you have a 7, 2, or 6 children, you may find yourself helping them more, and perhaps ignoring the rest. Those born under 8 or 9 may cause you greater worry. Because you tend to be more inward in feelings and affections, definitely take the time to tell your children how important they are to you. But more importantly – really mean it.
Number 8 parent
Born on the 8th, 17th, or 25th, you would be a number 8 parent. The 8 has often been described as cold and distant in nature. If this is true in your case, be careful not to let it rub off on your children. There really is a tender, loving side to your nature that the higher forces really understand. Children born on dates adding up to 8, 3, or 6 tend to look or act like you. As a result, you tend to share more with them, and give them more time. The reverse may be true with 4, 5 and 1 children. They may cause you more melancholy than any of the rest. But remember they’re yours too, and they need equal time and attention. It will pay off later on when you need their help.
Number 9 parent
Born on the 9th, 18th, or 27th of the month, you have a courageous nature – and you may expect the same of your children. You may tell them, “Why don’t you fight back? Why don’t you stand up for yourself?” If any of your children share a 9 birth date or are a number 1 and 3, you may not have a problem. But remember, every child is different and has to be treated accordingly. Your children may not be strong now, but they’ll prove their merit later on – just give them a chance. If your child was born on a 2 or 7 date, don’t expect a macho type of mentality, especially if they’re boys. Let them develop at their own speed – under Divine Creation, each of us has our own timetable.
