Mine is about 5'10" and has size 43/44 feet (size 10?). We don't live in the UK at the moment so I'm never sure what's normal. DH and I aren't particularly tall: I'm 5'8" and he's 6'2". Every time I look and DS he appears to have grown. Is he going to end up 6'10" ?!?

From your heights, he's likely to be just a little shorter than his dad - so another 3 1/2 inches to go(ish). Which sounds about right if he's in the throes of his main growth spurt atm

My recently turned 14 DN was 5'11 when we last saw him and had size 13 feet. BIL's famiy are all massive, though.

I was all of 5'5 at my tallest and DH is 5'10 and our 1.5yo has passed 5' already and is starting to shoot up. He's on course for 6' and DS2 isn't going to be far behind. FIL was over 6' and all other grandparents are shortarses!

5'8 and 6'2 sounds pretty tall to me!

DS2 is 6 ft exactly. His doctor says he has a bit more growing to do so will probably be 6'2 ish, like DH.

ds2 was 13 in January and is 6'1 and a bit and a size 10.5 feet. His predicted height was 6'7 or something silly, I think he will be 6'4 ish.

My 13 year old ds is 5ft 6 and a very important half. Size 7 feet.

Your sons are all so tall! My 13 year old DS1 is about 5'3". He's alright with that though as it makes him taller than me (I am 5'2") grin

What do you mean you and DH aren't particularly tall? Where do you live?!!! You are both tall!

14 yo ds is 5'4"....

Seeline Thu 02-Jul-15 14:27:58

Agree - you are both tall!!
My DS is still under 5'5'' (because I am still taller - just)
Feet size 7 I think

Quite tall but not excessively so. I am a teacher and 5'4'' - most year 7s (age 11) are still smaller than me - one or two in a class are taller. By year 9 (age 13) most are taller than me - some by a significant margin!

littlesupersparks Thu 02-Jul-15 14:33:52

Oh and you are both tall!!! 5'4'' is average for a woman and I describe my husband as 'quite tall' at 5'11''!

Y0la Thu 02-Jul-15 14:35:59

you're about 3-4 inches taller than average and your h is about the same. So I'd expect your son to end up being 6.3", as he has a tall mother and a tall father.

I was about 6'4 when I was 13.

My DD (just 13) is 5' 11" and still growing. She's love to meet some of these tall boys.... her school year are all much shorter at present.

We must have very tall friends! I always thought I was quite average.

CMOTDibbler, that is interesting. How does that work?

My (Greek) FIL said Greeks say double the height of a 3 year old and he reminded DS the other day that he was 3'2" at that age. It will be interesting to see and so reassuring to hear from others. Thanks everyone.

Ok, it must be living abroad that is making me think DS is really tall. DS is quite a tiddler compared to some of these heights!

5ft 10 and size 9 feet. I am only 5ft 4 and his dad is 5ft 11

Ds is 14, 5.9 and size 10 feet. Dh is 6.1 and I'm 5.11.

Sounds fine to me smile.
They grow at different rates in my experience.
DS1 was 6' tall with size 11 feet at age 12. Hasn't grown much since.
DS2 was much smaller, 5'2 with size 8 feet at 13. He is now 17 and 6'3".

I'm just under 5'10 and Dh is 6'2 - Ds1 is 14 (15 tomorrow smile ) and is 6'1.5 and size 11 feet - DS2 is 13 (14 soon) and is almost 6 foot and has size 10 feet. Both are predicted to be between 6'3 and 6'5 and are following percentile charts to be around that.

Your DS is tall as are mine but not yet freakishly so, I don't think either of mine are tallest in their year but can't be far from the top. However, plenty of boys are a lot smaller and some are only now started to hit puberty so may do a fair bit of catching up.

My DS is just coming up for 13 and I think may be due a growth spurt. He has size 9.5 feet and is 5 foot 2" .

applesareredandgreen Sun 05-Jul-15 00:01:52

DS just 14 is 5'8" with size 8 shoes. He has friends 6' and friends about 5'2". So - it varies a lot!

At 13, some boys have already shot up, and others haven't started their growth spurt at all, so it often looks a bit odd when you see a group of 13/14 yr olds together as they are all at such different stages of growing.
At 13, ds was quite a bit shorter than me (I'm 5'6"), now (at 19) he's 6' but still growing. Some of his mates OTOH were very tall at 13.

My DS was about 5'10 with size 10 feet at 13. I think he is about 5'11 now at 14 feet haven't grown any more, thank God, not sure how much taller he will get as I am 5'8" and DH is 5'7" His mates range in height from 5'6" to 6'3" and one of DD's friends who is nearly 16 has only just started growing taller - they are all so different.
