My daughter is 13 years old and is 93 pounds and 4'11. She started her period when she was 11 year old and her breast develop about the same age. A lot of people said that she is short for her age . She have very low esteem becuse of her height. How can she develop her height ? Is she a late bloomer or something?
You never know. A friend of mine had a son who got a lot of growth between his first and second years of college. They were really concerned because he was the shortest boy in his high-school class and he wound up 6 foot 2 inches tall. I got my periods for the first time in 7th grade and put on two more inches in height by high school. As RockRose says, see the doctor.
