The Aquarius parent is the hipster parent. They love nothing more than a good intellectual conversation and delight when their kiddos express themselves creatively. If your kid is passionate about something you bet it's the Aquarius parent that cheering in the front row. 

While they love seeing others around them succeed and grow, the Aquarius hates being disagreed with. So when it comes to handling a moody tween they can get flustered- but they'll always have their child's best interests at heart.

Pisces are also fiercely loyal and will do anything to protect their little one. Sometimes though they need to let the kids make their own mistakes and learn from them. 

Aries (March 19- April 20) 

Aries is the mum that seems to multi-task effortlessly. She can bounce a baby, supervise homework, cook a mean spag bol AND hold up a business call at the same time. They seem to have constant energy and are never afraid to volunteer for the PTA or soccer coaching.

The impulsive, fun-loving mum, they love taking their kids out to the park or museum. A great talker and an even better listener, your kids will have no problem coming to you with any problems they may have.
