How much should a 13 yr old weigh?

I saw on another board some parents talking about their 12 or 13 yr olds weighed like 86 lbs, which seems super skinny to me. So how much do you think an average 13 yr old should weigh. My dd is 13 and is 5 ft 5 in. I am going to wait to say how much she weighs, and see what you think is a normal weight for a child that age and height.

Edit: My dd does not weigh 86 pounds. That is just what many people on another board were saying their 13 yr olds weighed. Here is a picture of her:

This was taken last summer so she wasn't as tall then. Yell me how much you think she weighs and if you think she weighs too much.

This is my dd, taken last July. She has probably grown a little more since then. How much do you think she weighs and do you think she is overweight? I wish I had a more current picture.

 my 13 and a half yr old nies weighs 96lb. She is 5ft 1 in.

5ft 5in at 90lbs (I know you didn't say she was....I'm just saying b/c that's what you are questioning) sounds super skinny to me. Your dd is the same height as me. As an avg women. I would expect her to be between 115 and 145 depending on her frame and development.

My twin nieces just turned 14 two weeks ago. They are 5'6", 110 lbs and 5'4" 100 lbs. Both wear a size 0 or 2 depending on the jeans. Also I weighed 90 lbs when I graduated highschool and I am 5'4".

I looked at a chart and it said she was probably in the 95th percentile, if i read it right, and by her weight alone you'd think she was overweight, but looking at her she doesn't look overweight. I am not really worried but I am surprised by how small other people say their 13 yr olds are, and sometimes i wonder if i should be concerned.

It depends on their height and body type. When I was 13 I was 5'9.5" and 130lbs.

When I was 13 I only weighed about 80 lbs, but I'm 5'1.
