The relationship of the Cancer parent with his child
Cancers are considered an embodiment of caring and tenderness, they are ready to devote most of their time to their children, to solve their problems and fulfill their desires. Cancer parents have a devouring love for their children.
The children of Cancers are like them, they are always very curious. The little ones of Cancers are ready to fully open their hearts and souls to their parents, to share their most intimate secrets and their fears, knowing that they will be heard, understood and supported.
Mother Cancer has strong maternal feelings for her children. With her vivid imagination, she reveals to her child the beauty of life. Mother Cancer loves to tell fairy tales, she understands the inner world of her little child.
Mother Cancer endures her children’s disobedience to a point, and then she becomes strict. She may not always be in control of her words and emotions. The child is not always sure what kind of reaction to expect.
As the child grows up, the Cancer mother, through her excessive anxiety, may restrict her freedom.
Additionally, Cancer mothers, due to their rich imaginations, can sometimes make a mistake in assessing their child’s abilities.
For children, such a deep motherly love can cause them to become selfish, or find it difficult to enter adulthood, to overcome difficulties in their path.
Father Cancer is not always very concerned about his young children. But, as they grow up, he actively connects with the education process, finds time to communicate with his children, becomes interested in their extra-family activities. He is proud of his son, is ready to protect his daughter if necessary, and tries with all his might to befriend his offspring.
In the role of father, Cancer serves to his child as an example of a benevolent attitude towards parents and loved ones, careful treatment of their feelings, self-confidence, diligence, fulfillment of filial duty, firmness and perseverance in defending their ideals. For their children, Cancer fathers have strong and deep feelings.
Cancers are prone to sudden mood swings, due to which the child loses a clear understanding of his father. If, moreover, the Cancer father hides his feelings, then the child may not understand it at all. Between them can grow a wall of incomprehension. To prevent this from happening, Cancer fathers should share their feelings and experiences with their child, ask the child about their experiences.
