Being the parent of a young Gemini is a big responsibility and sometimes it may feel like you really do have twins, so different can the different sides to your little Gemini’s personality sometimes seem. It really can seem as though they have a split personality, with a real Jekyll and Hyde theme going on.
This little Genius will have you on your toes, for Gemini is not only an Air Sign, which rules the mind, it is the smartest of all the Signs. Here is a mind that is hungry for things to keep it occupied and they’ll get easily bored, always needing mental stimulation. They’re likely to master language early, regardless of when they start talking, so make sure you introduce books and language at an early age, keeping them mentally stimulated. If you want to know how old your little Gemini should be before you start reading bedtime stories, the answer is that you should be already, for when it comes to a Gemini and language, it’s never too early. They might not understand the words or see the pictures, but they’re soaking in the tone of your voice and the words and the way that they dance through their mind.
You’ve got a baby writer and thinker here. By the time your little Gemini is all grown up, they’ll be skilled wordsmiths and communicators. With a mind that is constantly jumping around, seeking information and stimulation, it’s soaking up information as it goes, like a little super computer.
Don’t think you have to treat this Baby Genius with kid gloves, push them academically or enrol them in Mensa. This doesn’t mean you have an intellectual on your hand, for Gemini’s crave adventure and rough play. These are also the practical jokers of the zodiac and when it comes to spinning you a line, oh boy, do you need to wake up to these little guys. They’ll pull the wool over your eyes so quick you won’t even know what’s happened. They’re not deceitful, they just know how to use words to their advantage, which maybe why they want to learn them so quickly.
These are the Twins of the zodiac and their attention is likely to switch quickly, from one topic to the next. When they’re older, they’ll be able to multi task. Your teenage Gemini really will be able to do his/her homework with the radio blaring, while talking on the phone and texting all at the same time. While you’re knocking at the door telling them to turn things down or off, aware that you couldn’t operate with so many distractions, they really will be telling you the truth, when they say that they can. They’re able to compartmentalise, having one part of their brain focused on one task and the other, on something else. They’ll be pros at this by the time they’re teenagers, but from Day 1 they’re practising.
Geminis are great travellers and whether it’s on their own steam, when you’ve left the door or the gate open and they spot an opportunity to escape or its with you, they’ll be adventurers from an early age, off exploring. Your young Gemini will be very dexterous, good with their hands and their fingers, mastering the keyboard or anything that requires fine motor co ordination. Combined with a fast, quick brain, they’ll soon be on the computer, mastering games for their level. A computer would be a good thing to introduce into your child’s life at an early stage, as computers and your little Gemini are a match made in heaven.
