Why a twelve-year-old? Why, because we're talking about the Page/Princess. Pages and Princesses tend to indicate a child or young adult in the questioner's life, and usually a female. However, just like the Princesses of Pentacles, the Princess/Page of Swords can also indicate an aspect of the questioner, and may not always indicate a female.

The Page of Swords, Or, a Really Snippy 12 Year Old Girl
When I was having my conversation with Kafi Gaultier about how best to learn tarot cards, she pulled a card from her deck as an example. The card was the Page of Swords. She showed it to me, and said, "Let's say you pull this card in the morning. Be on the lookout. Think about what it means. Think about what really stands out to you about the card. You may get a paper cut, or you may have to deal with a snippy twelve-year-old."
