Nine year olds today are facing a totally different world than the one we experienced. Many nine year olds have their own cell phones, and are fluent in the language of Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, and TikTok - and by the time you finish reading this sentence, it will already be outdated because some new social media platform will have been invented!

Nine year olds are inherently curious, so their natural inquisitiveness mixed with social media and the Internet can be a tricky combination. Ensure that they spend just as much time reading or playing outside as they do on screens, and ask them about what they're watching or seeing online. Low-tech gifts such as art supplies, activity books, and craft sets are a great way to encourage screen-free creativity.

At nine, kids are also becoming increasingly aware of the world around them. They may start to ask questions about topics they hear in the news. Help her by providing age-appropriate, factual information, and focusing on positive ways she can get involved in the community. Kids love being tasked with 'important' responsibilities. Never doubt a nine year old's enthusiasm - they can be very determined!

... Determined but also fickle! Nine year old girls have longer attention spans, but they also shift their interests faster than you'd expect. One week she could be obsessed with Star Wars and learning to speak Wookie, and then two weeks later she's passionate about saving the environment or training to be the next Megan Rapinoe. But whatever her current interest, she'll give it her all!
