Does anyone else have an extremely tall daughter? How are these kids so tall these days?

I've noticed my daughter hit a growth spurt recently. She gets her height from her mother clearly given I'm only 4'11." She asked me to measure as she noticed that I only come up to about her chin so I pulled out a step stool and saw she had reached 5'9" and she's only 10 years old. Not only is she tall but she also has a bigger build and has beaten me in arm wrestling. To my credit I'm an old man (51 years old) and stumped as to how these children are so big these days. She has a few friends her age who are also pretty tall, it doesn't seem to be uncommon these days.

    They’re not tall, you’re just short

    I believe that is good! A bring strong daughter can protect and look out for her daddy! That is awesome! Encourage her to play sports! Especially she should play basketball. Be proud of her!

    Physical growth is good because there is enough food now.
