I'm not normal!
I am too tall and look older than I am. I have started my period, and the other girls in my class haven’t. Guys in my class act as if they’re scared of me or something. – Too Tall
Dear Short and Tall,
You’re both fine the way you are. Work on accepting your height because you can’t change it. And remember, everyone grows at their own pace. Eventually, short kids stretch a few inches, and tall girls stop growing. I know it’s hard when girls and boys grown at such different rates, but just hang in there! Puberty requires patience.
