My daughter is 12 years old, she is 5'6 and weights 135. Should I be worried about this. I have looked everywhere but I cannot find a height/weight chart for children. she looked last night and saw stretch marks on her bottom and she freaked.

haha she sounds skinny. stretch marks arent that big of a deal, especially when many woman have them, when theyre probably because shes growing, and because theyre on her bottom where no one will really see them anyway.

I can see that. I did the same thing when I saw stretchmarks on me. I freaked out and I was totally upset. I didn't even talk to anyone. Besides it can be embarrasing. Tell your daughter it's OK just as long she doesn't think about them , looking at them, or complain about them. She will be allright.

she needs to lose weight. try getting books about it and getting her involved. it's better tha sitting on the couch watching tv and aeating.

No you should not be worried about this, look at everybody else and think about them!

Click on the weight calculator on the upper row of icon thingies on the first page of this site. IT will tell you what the healthy weight range is for your daugter.

You can plug your daughter's height, weight and age in the weight calculator on this site's homepage. I think your daughter's weight is totally normal and the stretch marks are from her growth spurt (usually happens ~12 for females). Hope this helps!
