Hello, I did not know where else to post this, there does not seem to be a General topic, so here it goes.
I have looked at every single family that I have come across, from school, friends, extended family, wive's friends and so on, and in all those families I have noticed that :
1) boys at the age of 13-15 have reached or overtaken their fathers in height
2) regardless of the mother's height - indeed there are some very short mothers, eg 1m60, yet the boys reach the dad's height at age 14-15-ish
Even when I go holidays, meet other families, and social circle, basically everywhere, I am not aware of one single family where the boys are shorter than the dad.
In all except my family, my eldest son who will soon be 18 is shorter than me, and my youngest son who is 15 has reached his brother in height but still shorter than me. All their friends from school who I have met have reached or have overtaken their dads, easy.
So I am wondering what's happening here. Do you have any stats or any views on the matter?
