Q & A

Today I went to a class and the teacher was talking about how our kids are taller than we are.  My daughter stopped growing over a year ago- she is now 15- and she is 1 and a half inches shorter than me.  Any one else have shorter kids?

    • My 19 yr old daughter and I are both short.  She stopped growing at about 13 and she is also 1 1/2 inches shorter than me.  Its hereditary.  

      At my work place, many elementary kids tower over me.

    • I can tell already that my middle daughter will be on the short side.  She is 12 years old and not even 5 feet yet.  Unless she has a big growth spurt in the next year or so she will stay on the short side.  I am 5‘7” and my oldest daughter is 5‘7” also.  Most of Kat’s shortness is due to medication but its also a bit due to the gene pool. I have one sister who is 4‘11” and the rest of us are 5‘7” to my brother who is 6‘6“.  My grandmother was a firery 4‘8” and my grandfather was 6‘7” he use to pick her up to kiss her.

    • Since I’m short...5‘1 and my husband is 5‘10...our boys are about 5‘10...which I consider to be a nice average height.  I would like to be a few inches taller but oh well..what can you do about it?  NOTHING...so why fret over it.  I like me for me.

    • A good friend just informed me that her son would be shorter than her, and his father by at least an inch according to her doctor. I was shorter than both of my parents too

    • I’m shorter than both of my parents.  I’m 5‘6 and my mother was about 5‘8 and dad was 6‘2.  Both of my husbands children are shorter than he.  He is 6‘1, his daughter about 5‘3 and his son about 5‘9.  I wished I was my mother’s height.

    • My oldest daughter is shorter than me by quite a bit.  She had the genes to go either way, be short or very tall.  She ended up short.  Youngest daughter is about eyeball to eyeball with me and pretty much done growing.  

      My son is almost 16, I’m sure he’s Not done growing yet and he’s taller than me and taller than his dad, but not yet as tall as the other men in my family tree.  I kind of doubt that he will get past 6‘2” which is average on my side of the family.  He got a bunch of short genes from his dads side.

    • My son is only 7 but I think he’s going to be tall.  I think he has less than a foot to grow before he is as tall as I am.  I am only 5‘2“.  His foot is already as big as mine.  My hubby, his dad, is 5‘11” but most of the men on his side are tall.
