  • Varies with kids based off hormone levels. Same with girls. If you are asking when girl get their first period. Again varies based on the girl and her hormones.

  • It really varies. Some gain most of their adult height by their early teen years, and some don't really start growing till their mid to late teens. My stepson has just now hit his adult growth spurt in the last year, at 16 to 17.

  • Wow, it baffles me to see the answers you have gotten so far. Most girls go through major growing spurts before they are old enough to get their periods, that being 9-14. By the time a girl is 14/15, she has pretty much done her growing, tall wise. Some, continue, or start later, but most are full height by that time.
    BOYS, start later, end later.
