My daughter is 12 years old, is 5'3" and weighs 156 pounds. Although she is not made fun of at school i.e. she thinks she is fat, and nothing I say can change that. What is the average weight of a 12 or 13 year old girl? PLEASE RESPOND AS SOON AS POSSIBLE

I think your child is a little over weight. I had a problem with my weigt to. Here is some advice my child is a gymnast and has to keep her weight down. I limit her telovision make sure she is eating healthy and keep very little sweets and sodas in the house if any. Also anytime I have extra time on my hands we go jump on the trampoline or take a walk or go running

Dear Ashley
I just looked this up on the Internet myself, today! It said the maximum average weight of an average 12 year old girl is 126 lbs or around there. I hope this helps. I'm not sure it's correct but that's what it said on there. Hope it helps!!!
Love w/ hope,

According to the weight calculator on this site, your the healthy weight range for your child ends at 126 pounds. As you already noted, she would not be considered very overweight. Definitely not worth the emotional pain of being made to feel fat by being put on a diet when you aren't actually fat.
