When do you stop growing?
Question in full: What age do you stop growing?
Dear 'At what age do you stop growing?' The answer is - that it depends on what part of you - you are talking about. If you take your height, which is what I think that you mean, then girls stop growning around 15 to 16 years of age and boys stop growing a bit later at around 16 to 17 years of age though there is considerable variation in individuals. What is particularly interesting is the question as to what age your brain stops growing. It used to be thought that your brain stopped growing or developing at around 16 years of age but actually it now turns out that your brain goes on developing new connections until about 24 years of age. These brain changes that occur in young people are thought to explain some of their behaviours like 'getting up late' and 'being emotionally rather up and down'.
