I often run into parents of kids ages 9 and up who are asking that age old question, “What happened to my sweet little 8-year-old?”
And I don’t mean to be the bearer of bad news, but the truth is: they’re gone forever (sorry!).
Hey, if they weren’t growing and changing, something would be wrong.
Rejoice in their changes and their progress! Enjoy these years while you can – they will end soon enough.
