Taurus children are a complex lot. When it is all said and done the sign of Taurus is about security and feeling at ease with oneself and one's environment. This is a tall order when you think that children (and especially teenagers!) are inherently at a disadvantage to feel comfortable in their own skin as they have not yet grown into who they are becoming not to mention that they are largely dependent upon their family for survival. They can only be as comfortable as Mom and Dad are with themselves and their lives.
These little ones require an extra dose of reassurance and a secure environment. Healthy Taurus has a connection with animals and nature. Giving your Taurus child opportunities to connect with the great outdoors with picnics, hikes and camping trips early in life will set them up nicely to deal with stressful times by turning to their second Mother - Mother Nature.
A less than perfect expression of dealing with a young Taurus is to indulge their seemingly endless desire for material goods. Materialism (aka spoiling your kid) can be harmful no matter what the sign - but Taurus children are especially susceptible. Be extremely careful not to provide shopping trips or food as rewards or means for offering security in stressful times. Later in life this could set up a very unhealthy pattern for your little one.
