Default How long do boys grow?

Someone was telling me that girls grow until they are about 15, as opposed to boys who can grow until they are about 20 years old. Is this true?

I think boys can grow in height until they are 18-20. They keep on growing in width long after that!

Why do you worry about those types of things, isn't being healthy more important to you?

Where did I say that I was worrying? I was only asking just for the sake of common knowledge.

One of these days you are going to learn to read between the lines. The sooner you acquire that skill the better it would be for you.

Yep they grow till about 15. The reason I know that is that I had my full grown relatively young. I suppose around 13. I was alround 5`4, and the girls on average 5`2. Fast forward it to 15. Im still 5`4 and those same girls are about 5`7.

My two sons are 25 and 32, and they are still growing... well, sideways now, but it seems that my son grew alot in between the time he left for basic and then came home.... in height and in size. Spidey, no matter how tall you get, its still a matter of how you carry yourself, and your attitude, that determines the size of the man!!!! Yeah I know, Im always the mom... trying to get the boys to become great men... bad habit... the bag boys at the grocery store hate it when I come in!!!!

I believe sports is very helpful such as running, body stretching (chin-up), jumping (basketball), but I would definitely avoid weight lift training.

I'm sure that when I get into college girls won't care much about my height but more about my intelligence and character.

interesting philosophy she had there

though someone who would break a relationship because the guy was too short... I mean, that is pure coldness. Because of that evil girl I am self conscious of my height now. I never was before though. She complained to me every day "oh you are short for a guy" and would check who is taller every day

Default Height

Spidey, most younger girls like to wear high-heeled shoes when they go out on a date; they feel awkward being taller than the fella when they do. I was 5'8" and felt the same way. I think it's just the nature of the beast!
