Basic Child Profile
Gemini children are generally quick-witted and verbal. The Gemini infant will recognize colors, sounds, and other methods of communication. Your little Gemini will be interested in hearing themselves speak, so be prepared for some chatty times! It's possible to nudge this gift of language into other forms such as song (singing is sometimes more pleasant than chatter) or memorization (learning poems or speeches can be educational and more interesting for a parent!)
Due to their element being Air, Geminis are interested in mental activities of all kinds. Games are a great way to exercise mental functions with children. Fairness is a big point for Gemini children - rules are sacrosanct for them. If you can explain the rules effectively (which of course involves repetition), Geminis will stick to them loyally. However, the love of rules can also lead Gemini children to feel they can make up their own! So watch out for problems with understanding "who's the boss," (but, generally speaking, this is a matter of understanding not deep-seated rebelliousness).
You may feel that you are aware of your child's development yet, the next day you feel as though you have a completely different child on your hands! This is not a "split-personality" sign, as uninformed definitions would have it. There is simply a certain structure within Gemini that leads to coping mechanisms that puzzle people at times. Be the confidante your children need. When there is a gap in understanding Geminis1 behavior, you are probably up against their subconscious. Geminis tend to "hide" parts of the truth that are difficult to deal with, and these segments of experience manifest in surprising ways. Do not punish your child when you are surprised. Rather, help them to see why they were afraid or frustrated.
