The Female Ox

Compared to the male Ox, the reliable and determined female Ox is definitely more outspoken. Strong-willed and authoritative, she always keep her feet firmly on the ground, she never lose sight of reality. Her reputation means more to her than wealth.

The Ox Child

This child will not be a crybaby. The Ox child is unusually tough and can endure hardship. Unyielding and stubborn, he can turn the house upside down if he wants to. He is not the fussy type and he tends to begin speaking late. This rugged individualist would rather settle arguments with his fists. Fortunately, he wont resent discipline, in fact the Ox child will welcome your fixing a schedule for him. He thrives on regularity; having his meals at the same time each day, knowing where everything is and what's expected of hhim will give him a sense of security. The Ox youngsters enjoy taking charge when teacher or parents is away and is stern and unsympathetic towards offenders. He is also not easily influenced or taken in by flattery. Instaed of begging him to do unpleasant things, it should be more effective to tell him “It is an order!”. Not argumentative by nature, but in order for him to obey you, you must gain his respect.
