tell me about it lill I have to jump up to slap him lmao he towers above me now god I hope he stops soon we can only get trousers to fit him in lengh in one shop in the whole area lol .

Worse thing is because he is so tall he stands out in a crowd and you get idiots trying to pick fights with him because of his size.

He might be tall but he can use it to his advantage, there is nothing wrong with being tall atall. Think of all the "shortys" who wanna be a basketball player but cant cause they are too short. Guys can carry on growing till they are 25. Sure your son is tall but the tallest guy ever was like 7"4.

wow, thats really tall, i guess he will stop growing about 19-21 years old. Others says is 18, but i think that's for girls. Guys are 21.

I'm a guy and I hit puberty at 11 and finished growing at 14. I'm now 16. I've been 170 cm (5'7") since I was 14.
