I'm not sure how tall I am but I'm shorter than both my parents who are 5"7 and I'm pretty sure I've finished growing! Hate being the short one in the family

Mum - Not totally sure, 5' 0" or less
Dad - 5' 10"

Me: 5' 2"/5' 3"

I'm pretty short! I'm 17 and my 13 year old brother is taller than me. Could have been worse though oh well.

Apparently 5'10 is considered short in the Netherlands. I've even heard some people say that 6'0 is borderline between average and short, lol. How true is that in your experience?

Well my father's English but my mother and her family are Dutch so...

6'0 is about average, probably slightly above actually. Bear in mind that many of the Dutch surveys include many immigrants from Turkey etc and an ethnic Dutchman really is rather tall. If you go to Friesland in the north for instance you will see more people above 6'0 than below it. But Scandinavia/Germany isn't far off at all. In my experience Swedes are as tall as the Dutch or only slightly shorter.

Dutch people are quite proud of this fact and I've seen Amsterdam people, known for their direct sense of humor, give quite cruel nicknames to friends of mine who never thought they were short until they visited...
