Ages 6-9: Emotional Development
- Children still tend to be self-centered. Most want to be first, and most want all the attention. Squabbles can break out when your child feels slighted.
- You’ll notice periods when your child sulks, pouts, and worries. Help him deal with disappointments and worries.
- Children tend to have their feelings easily hurt. They also tend to assume that people who hurt them “did it on purpose.” Help your child not feel victimized or always jump to acting on revenge.
