My almost 11 year old is 5 foot tall and she's worried about being tall. She's taller than most of her classmates....she said she wishes she was 4 feet 5. I really want to tell her she's not that tall....but I do think she is tall. What sho

Answers:

My little sister is also 11 and my height (5'0") which I'm 20 and small. I wouldn't say she's tall, just taller than some peers and that's okay probably around the 80th percentile which isn't bad.

I was always the tallest in my class at school but everyone soon caught up with me and I am now 5'5. My granddaughter is 11 and she is 5'2

It's not all that tall.

She's going to look like her parents. If they're tall, she may be tall too.

Models have to be over 5'9" -- our society likes tall women and thinks they're beautiful. Tell her to stop worrying about this.

Continue to lie to her

Try to help her understand that everyone grows differently and some children will grow faster than others. It sounds like she is hitting her growth a little earlier than her classmates. Also, girls do usually start their growth spurt before boys. It is extremely common for girls to be as tall or even taller then the boys of their class for a little while and then the boys catch up and pass them. Try to help her understand that in just a few years, most of the boys will be much taller than her.

Being 5 feet tall at 11 is not an indication that her final height will be "tall". After all, the average height for women is around 5 feet, 5 inches. Most girls reach their height by the age of 15 or 16. There is very little change in height after that age for a girl.

One last thing, has she always been "tall" for her age? If not, then chances are good that she just hit her height early. If she has always been "tall" for her age, then there is a chance that she will end up a little taller than the average female. I do not remember what my daughter's height was at the age of 11. But, my oldest daughter was always "tall" for her age. Even as an infant, baby, and toddler, she was in the top of the growth charts. By the time she was in middle school, she was taller than almost all of her classmates. She is five foot, ten inches. She completely embraces and loves her height and even wears four inch heals sometimes.

No, it isn't. And why would it matter? You can't make her shorter. How about someone teaching her it's okay to be who she is?

There is nothing wrong with being tall. I was 5'2 when I was 11 years old but in my class it was average. She can even become a model and embrace her height to be more confident with herself.

It doesn't matter. Especially if she wants a tall boyfriend. A guy who is 6"2' doesn't wanna bend down 2 feet to kiss a midget.

There's nothing wrong with being taller than most of your classmates. I too was taller than most when I was young but in Middle and High School people started growing and now I am average compared to others my age.
