Leo from infancy feels like a winner. He is very fond of being in the spotlight, and looks at adults with patience, generously. Leo baby smiles a lot, literally fascinating all the surrounding people. He very quickly becomes very demanding, and announces the district with a loud roar, when he is not in a hurry to feed or pick up. The kid is not inclined to be capricious, but he is very fond of comfort, convenience, and therefore he will demand a roar to change his diaper or fix the blanket. The egocentrism of the Leo can develop into the most hypertrophied form, if the parents begin to indulge him in everything, giving him toys or food on demand.
Little Leo very soon is able to establish himself in the opinion that the whole world around exists specifically for him, and because of this in his life will begin to encounter great problems. You do not need to bounce to any call of the Leo, unless it is connected with his physical difficulties — for example, with wet panties. Gradually parents should bring up patience in him, ability to wait, listen. Already from the very childhood with Leo you need to talk quietly, explaining to him why parents forbid or delay listening to the calm timbre of the voice, and he himself began to follow his demanding cry.

Toys are usually small, Leo chooses himself, and his choice is always unpredictable — sometimes he wants to get bright, colorful sets for design, and sometimes his attention stops on a plain-looking plush monkey that he feels sorry for, and so the kid must certainly bring it and Store home. Little Leo likes to play with household items — builds houses from chairs, plays on pots, like a drum, and sometimes asks to buy a sponge to make a ship out of her house ...
The Leo needs praise and approval, he always wants to hear good words in his address, so do not forget to praise him for his good deeds and his small victories — he will always be very proud and happy! But what the Leo does not like is the limitations of his freedom. His independent character will always demand independence in business, and adults should respect the baby in this endeavor, and help him only when he really needs it. By imposing bans on something, parents should offer the child an alternative to this, for example, if the kid wants to run around the puddles — promise to take the rubber boots for the next walk, in which he can do it.

The Leo, who is forced to live in the shadow, will in the subsequent life constantly strive for the missing attention and become more exacting with every minute.
Energetic Leo-boys need to release steam from time to time. Being a sign of fire, Leo loves the challenge and is able to enter into a desperate struggle, having managed to grab a tidbit.
