Keeping the Peace at Home

Keeping the Peace at Home
When the inclement weather of winter hits, your children retreat inside and -- in most cases -- eventually start wreaking havoc in your home. How do you keep your kids occupied and in line? It all depends on how they react to being boxed in. You'll need to use your ingenuity!

The adventurous kids are the Fire signs -- Aries, Leo and Sagittarius -- who much prefer to be out and about. The highly active Cardinal signs –- Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn –- also hate being tied down.

The best solution may be to construct a gym in your basement. If you have a competitive Aries or a sports-fixated Sagittarius, they'll relish the idea of keeping fit. Even Leo, who has been known to be lazy, will be happy to stay streamlined for the long list of holiday parties they've got lined up. Beyond that, you'll need to find indoor adventures in board or video games to keep their sparring tendencies to a minimum.

The Cardinal signs -- especially Capricorn -- need a project to harness their initiative and ambition. Encourage them to explore their greatest interest, and make that an achievable goal over the next few months.

The ones who'll be keen to help you in the kitchen are Cancer, Virgo and Taurus. Virgo prefers to have tasks to do; failing that, they're content to sink themselves into a book in a corner chair. Cancer loves being at mom or dad's side, helping make the home or yard a wonderful place to be. Taurus adores food, so they'll be happy to make any leftover cake batter quickly disappear!

Libra isn't inclined to get their hands dirty, but they'll peruse the cookbook, select the best recipe ... then start thinking up ways to redesign their bedroom. Their costs of their ideas will have to be trimmed back, but at least it'll keep them occupied!

Aquarius will be right by your side if you have new gadgets in the kitchen or home office. They'll surely drool over the latest technology and will even enjoy reading the instruction manuals.

Gemini tends to get restless when marooned indoors, so unless you want your phone bill to skyrocket, give them tasks to inspire their imagination; otherwise, they'll get bored and will be bound to cause trouble.

Pisces will pose no trouble at all since they'll tuck themselves out of sight with their MP3 player. That said, they're also happy with any fun and games -- as long as someone else organizes it!

Finally, Scorpio will grumble and sulk, and they'll need to be gently coaxed into participating in family games. They'd really prefer to have you all to themselves, so try to give them quality one-to-one time when you can.
