I thought about getting a taller wife but the kids do not want to do that, and I have this one trained already

why are you going to put a narrower tire on?

120/60 is the stock tire size, 120/70 ends up on there a lot though.
that will raise the bike up by 6mm in front, that's about 1/4 inch.

I think if you only lower the front it will change the way the bike turns? Low in the front turns fast and low in the back turns slow? I think??? I read somewhere but never had the chance to try it out.

so then if we lowered front and back, it wouldn't effect it at all?

i could not find the owners manual download i found before that said it was 120/60 tires up front, but I found over ten pages of google searches that said 120/60 was the stock tire up front and some even add that the 120/70 will fit, but often it rubs the fender.

I would lower instead of going with lower profile tires, but also make sure they are the right tires in the first place as well. It should have 120/60 up front and 160/60 in the rear, if 1/4 inch can make her comfortable enough to leave it stock height that would be best.
