Depends on the kid but five is when
one has to train them for proper
behavior in social situations. Up
to five, they are babies and adorable.
At five, they become obnoxious for
precisely the same behaviors because
they have weight, vocabulary, and
understand precisely where to apply
these to get effect on adults, and
effect is all they care about.
12 to 14 is when they become troublesome.
They become capable of spawning new
adorable babies without the resources
to raise them properly. See SGML.

isn't this noted as being an especially troublesome period.
