Hi minister,

How many inches do boys grow to be taller than their mothers?


In rough terms, if you take the average of your father’s and mother’s heights, then boys born to your parents will grow to a minimum of that average or up to 10 inches taller. Since in many families the mother is shorter than the father, a boy will grow taller than his mother. If the mother is taller than the father, it isn’t a guarantee that a boy will be taller than his mother.
