Scorpio- The Scorpio Child The Scorpio child can test a parent's limits. This little one may start playing power games in the cradle. Everything is a means of achieving power and mastery over others. As Scorpio children grow, they are better able to handle the extremes in their nature. They generally have positive motives in mind. They want to understand the way the world works, and they won't rest until they do. Parents need to stay ahead of this child.
