I'm posting this at the request of my 16-year-old nephew. He was always on the short side - his dad is 6' 2", and his uncle, my husband, is 6', after shrinking from 6'1" (he'll be 52 in August). Every time I see Erik, he's grown a couple of inches, but he has a sort of inferiority complex, because his best friend, also 16, is 6' 8". My sister's son. whom he has contact with, is 15, but is a hulking 6'3". Can anybody relate stories of teenage boys who grew several inches after the age of 16? I don't find 5'75" "short", but I can understand that he's a bit oversensitive.
