How to select 9th birthday wishes

9th Birthday Wishes: Birthday Messages for 9 Year Olds

If you're wondering what type of 9th birthday messages you should choose, you may want to start thinking about more mature choices. By "more mature" I mean you should choose birthday greetings that are halfway between childish and adolescent.

Why the change in maturity level? Well, most 9 year olds have entered the world of "tweeners" (primarily children aged 9 to 12 who fall somewhere between "little kid" and "teenager"), reaching a new emotional and social plateau in the process.

This drastic shift in mindset, which has a significant impact on the type of 9th birthday wishes you should send 9-year-old birthday boys and girls, stems from the social and emotional milestones they achieve at this age.

According to a webmd.com article entitled Milestones for 9 Year Olds, kids this age tend to experience the following milestones (each of which point to a different type of birthday message)...

  • "have solid friendships, are curious about relationships between boys and girls and have a strong desire to fit in," so a happy or sentimental birthday greeting from a friend or relative (plus Mom and Dad, of course) that shows how likable the 9-year-old birthday boy or girl is would work wonders
  • "have gained a strong sense of empathy (and are sensitive to the feelings of others)," so a sentimental birthday wish that commends them for their kindness would be appreciated by any 9 year old
  • "have overcome most fears that were common in earlier childhood (but they often start having more anxiety from common stressful situations)," so an inspirational birthday verse that pays tribute to their newfound courage and encourages them to be their best and follow their bliss would be welcome by tweeners at 9
  • "have more stable emotions than in the previous year (can control their anger most of the time)," so a happy or sentimental birthday message that praises their new emotional maturity would be ideal
  • "still need and want the security of their relationship with their parents (and are greatly influenced by their parents' example)," so sentimental-inspirational birthday wish that shows how much you care about your son or daughter, how proud you are of him or her and what you think he or she can accomplish in the future is the best route parents can take

In other words, the 9th birthday wishes you select should be less babyish than the kind you've used in the past, showing the 9-year-old birthday boy or girl that you applaud (and support) their emotional and social development.

Wishing you a 9th birthday with the whole nine yards...pizza, cake, ice cream, balloons and lots of friends to share all the food and fun.

Give us your BIG birthday smile and let’s have fun! You’re now 9 and this doesn't happen all the time! Happy 9th birthday!

Happy 9th birthday! Hope you have a wonderfully special day and year on Cloud 9 years old!

Some birthday wishes have a very clever way of helping a young mind put age in perspective. The one right below is clever in this way. How?

By using the "headstand" analogy, this birthday message lets the 9-year-old birthday boy or girl look at age in a different way and, ultimately, shows that age is only a number.

9 is 6 turned upside down! Whenever you feel old, do a headstand and turn everything upside down, even your age! Happy 9th birthday!
