Are you taller than your parents?

Who here is taller than one (or both) of their parents? I'm actually really short (5'3") but my mom is only 4'11" but my dad is 6'0" even.

I'm not sure about the heights of my mom and dad, but I'm around 5 foot 4 inches tall. I know that I'm taller than my mom, but I was a few inches shorter than my dad in height.

I'm taller. I'm 1.85 meter, my father 1.83 meter and my mother only 1.76 meter. My two little brothers are 1.82 meter and 1.45 meter

I'm taller than both. My mom is pretty short and my dad is an inch or two shorter than me.

I'm taller than most of my family, by roughly a couple of inches. I'm 5'10 but my dad and my brother are around 5'8, my mom was 5'6 I think, my uncle is 5'5 I think, and my grandma is and always was around 5'4.

My bro (180cm) is taller than my dad (170cm), but I'm shorter than him (160cm).

It's a family inside joke to poke fun at my dad's height. Actually, I think he once told me that he wished I was taller than him so that he wasn't reminded of his short genes...ness. :mlp_laugh:

Yep, I'm the tallest in my family. My parents are about 1-2 inches shorter than me.

I'm taller than my mom, yet still shorter than my dad. If only I'd grown a couple more inches! :D

I'm one inch taller than my mom, but shorter than my dad. I don't know my dad's height, but I'm 5'5" and my mom is 5'4", so we're both very average.

I think I'm the third tallest person in my whole family at 6'1". My mom is 5'4" and my dad is taller than her but I'm not sure by how much, 3 inches at most I think.

I'm 179cm (between 5'8" to 5'9" for those using the sad Imperial system :D) which is actually the tallest in my entire family including my both brothers.

Yep, my dad was a wee guy at 5'7" (1.70m) and my mum was 5'8" (1.73m). I'm standing at just under 6'0" (1.81m last I checked), and my sister is 5'9" (1.75m).

Of course, doesn't help that everyone on my dad's side is tiny, and my mum's side is full of Dutch giants. :laugh:

I'm 3 inches taller than my mom who's 5'2". I'm still shorter than my dad who's 5'9". I know, I'm pretty short for my age.

I'm 5'6", so I'm quite a bit taller than my mom (5' even) but a few inches shorter than my dad (5'9").

I am taller than both my parents. My mum is 5'3" and my dad is around 5'7", wheras I'm slightly over 6 feet. They would've been at least an inch taller in their prime, given that they shrunk a bit due to age.

My dad is taller than me and always will be, but I'm the same height as my mom or maybe even an inch taller than she is.

I'm taller than both of my parents. In fact, I'm the tallest in my immediate family.

Yeah, I guess so. My mother is fairly short and I'm right around my father's height.
