... money, friends and, more than anything else, Mom, to name just a few of the things that interest your average 8 year old. The full list is anybody's guess but the best indicators of what's going on inside their 8-year-old minds (and what would be the best birthday messages for them) are the social and emotional milestones they share at this age.
"has strong need for love and understanding, especially from mother," so a special heartfelt (what I call "sentimental" on this site) birthday greeting overflowing with love from Mom is one of the best choices for the birthday boy or girl
"may be quite sensitive and overly dramatic (emotions change quickly)," so a funny birthday wish that ridicules the birthday boy or girl (even a little) is not the best idea (a sentimental birthday message full of compliments is a much better option)
"favors group play, clubs and team sports (wants to feel part of a group, makes friends easily and is more influenced by peer pressure)," so sentimental, cool, inspirational or generic (what I call "happy" on this site) birthday greetings that focus on some aspect of friendship should greatly interest the birthday boy or girl
"can be obsessed with, and motivated by, money," so birthday wishes that have a Richie Rich feel will be popular with the 8-year-old crowd
"can be helpful, cheerful and pleasant as well as rude, bossy and selfish," so sentimental or inspirational birthday wishes with an upbeat (even overly optimistic) message are the way to go
All in all, the 8th birthday wishes you decide to give should primarily be sentimental or happy in style with cheerful, optimistic messages to appeal to 8-year-old birthday girls and boys, making them feel incredible on their most special day of the year. You will see many 8th birthday wishes that fit description...just a few inches down.
