Is it normal for a 12 year old girl to be 5'3 ?

my sister is 12 and she's going into 7th grade. she's not the tallest girl in her class but she's been very insecure about her height. Is it normal for a 12 year old to be 5'2 or 5'3. And what should i tell her?

  • Wether it's normal or not I don't know, but I'm almost 6 foot and I love me a short girl.

  • When I was 12, I wasn't even 5'. Some people just grow differently. I'm now 26 and almost 5'10"

  • That is how tall I was when I was 12, and guess what. 8 years later and I am still that same height. :(

  • At her age I was 5'4.5", and since then I haven grown 1 inch, so it's totally normal. ☺
