Synopsis: Growth chart showing the average height to weight ratio for 2 to 12 year old male children. Height is often influenced by heredity, meaning that if parents or other family members are tall or short, those traits can also be reflected in a child's height. If you have any concerns about your child's growth not being on track, it's advisable to seek guidance from your child's medical practitioner.

## Introduction

There is quite often a sudden spurt of growth in young boys between 9 to 15 years of age, with a gain in weight of around 8 to 10 pounds per year. However, it is important to keep in mind that many children in this age group are experiencing a pubertal growth spurt, and it may appear they are overweight (by weight-for-age) when, in fact; they are just tall. Normal growth for male kids is classified within a range that pediatricians use to assess a child's developmental progress. The following table represents typical weight and height ranges for 2 to 12 year old boys.
