Message Guy Tip #85: How to pick 6th birthday wishes
To choose the right 6th birthday messages, you need to keep in mind that most 6 year olds would...

...rather rip open their gifts than read a birthday message. The only way to distract 6 year olds long enough for them to read the 6th birthday wishes you've chosen is to concentrate on what's important to them.
To give you some benchmarks for choosing 6th birthday messages, I did a little research and discovered a few social and emotional milestones for 6 year olds that could have an impact on your choice:
"is growing more independent, yet feels less secure," so a sentimental birthday message that praises one of his/her qualities could make him or her feel special
"craves affection from grownups," so your birthday wish can be more on the "sentimental" or "happy" side with enough heartfelt words could be just what this little tyke needs
"needs to win and may change rules to suit herself/himself," so birthday greetings that make the birthday boy or girl feel like a winner or a champion (or both) will likely be the best choice
"may be hurt by criticism, blame or punishment," so you may want to avoid birthday messages that poke fun at the birthday boy or girl (birthday verses that are generous with praise should be music to his/her ears)
"is increasingly aware that others have may have different feelings," so birthday messages with a "kindness" factor may interest the birthday tyke (and will be appreciated by his or her parents)
In other words, whatever you select as a 6th birthday wish needs to make the 6-year-old birthday girl or boy feel special enough to curb his or her natural instinct to discard the birthday message and rip open his or her birthday gifts. This is not an easy feat but it's definitely easier to achieve with the 6th birthday wishes just below.
