My girl was shooting a Diamond Atomic at 6. She's big for her age, but she handled it fine. She just outgrew it this year at 9. Great little bows.

Mine too.  Great starter bow.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Every father should remember that one day his children will follow his example instead of his advice.

Check out the Diamond infinite edge.
Adjustable draw weight from 5lbs all the way up to 70lbs.
Adjustable draw length from 13" up to 31".
The price new isn't too bad either. Of course you could look around for a used one too.
I got one for my daughter and couldn't be happier.

That is a good bow also and what I upgraded my daughter to after she grew out of the atomic.  The thing with the infinite edge is it is pretty long ATA.  I would almost go to a Mission Craze because of the shorter ATA, it is just as adjustable just a little bit smaller if you are thinking about getting one for a 6 year old.

The mass weight of the infinite edge is too heavy for most 6 year olds.  The Atomic is a much better choice, and for such a small bow it really spits 'em out! 
Hunt hard and shoot straight!

Diamond Atomic or Hoyt Ruckus jr. We have both. The Ruckus jr. is a bit bigger but more plastic parts. Both are quality though and my boy shoots the Ruckus more now that he is 8.
