Six Is Growing

"The six-year-old is a complex child, entirely different from the five-year-old. Though many of the changes are for the good―Six is growing more mature, more independent, more daring and adventurous―this is not necessarily an easy time for the little girl or boy. Relationships with mothers are troubled―most of the time Six adores mother, but whenever things go wrong, it's her fault. It used to be, at Five, that she was the center of the child's universe; now, the child is the center of his own universe."
