II. Your Child's Psychological Type
In this concise chapter Liz Greene describes the child's general temperament and his characteristic approach to life.The rich array of individual abilities and potentials portrayed in Pedro's birth horoscope is set against the background of an inherent temperament bias which may be partly hereditary but is also the reflection of a mysterious essence which belongs to him alone. This mysterious "something" is already at work within Pedro, helping him to develop his personality along the lines which are healthiest and most natural to him. [..] Pedro tends to burden himself with the obligation of being good, and therefore he does not need to have parental guilt instilled in him in addition. Rather, he needs as much help and encouragement as possible to recognise and value his emotional needs, even if these needs [...] III. The Characters in the Story
This is one of the most comprehensive chapters of the "Child's Horoscope". This short version touches only on a few of the central characters in your child's personality.

Emotional Needs and Patterns in Relationships
This chapter contains valuable information on the child's basic needs and the relationship with his parents. The complete horoscope covers this chapter on 5-6 pages.Every child has particular ways in which he or she experiences and seeks emotional contact with others, and this may not always accord with other, more dominant personality traits. [..] Distance and detachment are hurtful and frightening for him in any relationship, and frequent emotional reassurances may be needed although he is not likely to demand them overtly. It is more likely that he will try to sense what others need and will draw closer to them [...] [..] But as Pedro gets older his need will be revealed as something deeper, for he looks to his father for a quality of emotional solidity which is just as important as practical reliability. Of course no parent, however hard-working and responsible, can exhibit granite-like [...] V. Fears and Insecurities
