Okay! I'm a good athlete at school, tho I don't do much basketball. But I'll reconsider it! But What types of foods are preferable for height increase?

What? Thats not what I meant! I didn't mean to be like that, okay? I'm just saying that maybe its possible, and when it happens, I'll get back to you. Don't take this the wrong way

There isn't a waym it's self-evident. All you can do is maximize what you have. Eat properly, get the sleep you need, keep your bowels and bladder in good working order. If there was some other way we could get ourselves to grow more, humanity would be a race of giants by now.

Why does it even bother you so much?

I dunnno. My friends keep teasing me about my height; I even get bullied most of the time by taller people in my grade. It hurts, really, getting bullied by 12 year old boys who are like, 5'5".

They're teasing because it gets to you. Stop letting it get to you. At your age I was probably about the same height as you. I made it to 5'7" very quickly between the sages of 12 and 16. Stop worrying and stop letting it get to you. There are more important things to think about.
