My 14 year old daughter has always been tall for her age. She had a physical the other day and was officially measured at 6 feet tall. Hitting the 6 foot mark has been sort of a mental barrier for her. Saying "6 feet" now when people ask her how tall she is just reminds her even more how much taller she is than everyone else. She towers over her friends and many of her teachers. It's tough on an 8th grade girl!
I'm only 5'7" so it's hard for me to really relate to her anymore. She passed me up when she was 12. She's having trouble fitting into clothes and shoes because she's growing so fast and we've had some major tears over it. It's hard for me to see her so awkward and uncomfortable because she's a truly beautiful and kind-hearted young woman. Anyone have similar experiences?
