Essence: a difficult little girl.
The aggressive little girl
They are often difficult children. They feel very weak and need lots of attention, which they will try and get at any cost, even if they have to scream and shout. Any situation where they are required to grow up and act their age might provoke a whole series of complaints, for instance when they are weaned from the breast, or when the parents separate or one of the parents dies, or when they have to leave home, or when it is time to get a job.
Holding on to people by behaving like a dependent little girl
The need for attention and support also shows in the type of games they play: little girls will love to play fathers and mothers with their dolls. Or, in cases where their parents are threatening to split up, they may act the helpless and dependent little girl who can’t do without them.
Angry because you are only a girl
This is the other side of the coin: they don’t want to be small and dependent any longer. And when anybody dares to treat them like that they get very angry. They rebel if their mother doesn’t allow them to grow up and they get annoyed when someone calls them ‘little girl’.
Fear of the aggressive outside world, being only a little girl
They can’t handle aggression very well. They feel very awkward about it, as if they are not allowed to make a fuss. They should be quiet and content. But they still want to stand up for themselves, even although this is not allowed and even though they are afraid of being hurt. So they tend to resort to nagging about little things. They feel they don’t get what they need and they are longing to have a real go at somebody or something. They feel as if everything is against them, as if other people are always in the way and are stopping them from getting what they want. This makes them impatient and irritable.
