The child of Virgo is quiet, peaceful and shy. Virgo Baby is very delicate and will be selective about food very early. Once his parents know what he likes, he is easy to please, does not demand too much work, and does what he is asked to. As he grows he starts to show his intelligence and his capacity for details. He has fun discovering things other people usually do not see. He is tidy and neat with his toys. He is very shy with strangers at home; he does not speak, he hides in different places, or he just stands motionless. As he starts to feel comfortable, he releases pressure.
He has a complex personality and is so sensitive, he gets hurt very easily. Any challenge, criticism or mockery generates a complex almost immediately. Often he feels insecure or inferior. His parents must help him develop his self-esteem from the start, by demonstrating their love and support repeatedly. One word of praise is not enough, because he may not take it seriously. He is a good friend of his mother and he is always helping with the housework. You do not need to ask him twice to do something.
At school Virgo Baby can become one of the best pupils for the teacher because of his dedication and discipline. He sometimes even corrects his teacher. He is a perfectionist. The Virgo child is not satisfied with things in writing, but requires physical proof. He has a very inquisitive mind. It is good for him to have many educational games at hand to stimulate his mental capacity. Education plays an important role in this child's life, because the more he learns, the more confidence he will have in himself. The child of Virgo who does not receive a very good education can have many problems as an adult, such as being unhappy, shy or introverted, or having feelings of inferiority. He will have very precise habits, and will have a place for everything. He will complain about his brothers and sisters when they want to destroy his tidy world. He may criticize all the members of the family and even imitate them in a funny way.
His emotional world is very complex and much of the time he will not let anybody know what is going on inside of him. In adolescence, he becomes more sensitive, so his parents should not make fun of his first steps in love. This could cause deep wounds which could affect his future where love is concerned. You can bring out the best in him by using delicacy, gentleness and a logical way of speaking. He yields in the face of aggressiveness and he becomes paralysed instead of exploding. A good way to improve his future emotional life is to teach him how to show his feelings freely. It is also very important to talk naturally about sex, to make him feel more secure. You do not have to be afraid of spoiling this child or of creating illusions in him. He is very realistic, clever, and all the fantasies he develops in childhood will contribute to his emotional balance in the future.
