Should they have made Dawn younger?

Hi all!

So we all know that Joss intended for Dawn to be younger but changed that after casting MT. Do you think this was a good decision? Do you think they should have adapted the dialogue of S5 to make her appear older?

I personaly wished they had made Dawn older and closer to Buffy's age because I find older Dawn to be the best Dawn.

What do you guys think?

I definitely don't think they handled it very well. They should've either fit the dialogue once they hired Michelle so she didn't come off so immature for parts of S5, or hired an age-appropriate child actress.

Personally, and I love Dawn, I wish we would've gotten the original young Dawn we were supposed to (8-10). S6 would have been even more interesting with a change like that, if you ask me.
