    I’m am a 13 year old girl and very short, standing at only 4’ 7. My mother lived to be only 5’ and my dad is 5’ 7” so I know I won’t grow to be very tall, and will stay short but aspirational high is 4’ 11/ 5’, would I be able to grow to that height? Is there any way to grow faster and what is the age you stop growing?

    Its mostly genetics. Actually getting some sun on your skin significantly helps as well but yeah again, mostly genetics.

    At 13 years of age you definately still have time left to grow further, but will you actually grow more? It is impossible for anyone to say for certain but I would imagine that you will.

    How tall you end up is genetic, so because your parents are short it's unlikely you'll grow much taller, however you do have a few years left where you could grow. Just keep yourself healthy, because eating junk food or not exercising enough can reduce your growth too.

    I have a thing for short girls.

    I'm married, so I'm not grooming here, I'm just pointing out that even if you're short there is someone for everyone.

    You just can't have me.

    Every morning after waking up jump as high as possible and that will stretch your spine, consequently increasing growth.

    That's complete nonsense, look there is nothing wrong with being short, sure studies have shown that short people are generally less successful, but don't let that hinder you....

    Ok, that last fact is actually true, but regarding the relationships, there is absolutely nothing to worry about. I actually much prefer tiny girls as they are adorable. You have nothing to stress over, you sound like you have a very fun family and I'm sure you will get more comfortable with yourself in later years.

    As a 14 year old standing at 6’3 being tall isn’t great, I’m skinny as well so I get called lanky by literally everyone so being short isnt that bad

    You've most likely stopped growing so can't really do anything but you might not have, if you haven't stopped growing there is still a chance you could be taller since you're still quite a bit shorter than your mother, girls are usually no less than 2 inches shorter than their mother but are usually taller. Girls usually stop growing 2 years after their period.
