You can find a chart of expected weight at www.healthychildren.org.Put "growth chart" in the search bar and select female .If you put the kids height on the chart at her present age it gives you a position showing how that compares with others.Locate a similar percentage point on the weight chart below to find expected wt range

12 year old daughter knee injured, xray showed "crack" doctor said normal for child. Swollen, sore, can't bear weight. How long wait for 2nd opinion?

Why wait?

Knee
If you are not comfortable/confident in what the first doctor has advised you then you should get a second option as soon as you can comfortably get one. There is no reason to wait. If the first doctor was not a pediatric orthopedist then you defiantly need a second option from a pediatric orthopedist. There are several on Long Island

Can you tell me a normal size penis for a 12 year old?

Very variable

Groin-testicles
depending upon whether he is pre or post-pubertal. Pre-pubertal norms would be 5 - 7.5 cm. from pubic bone to tip of glans. 10 - 13 cm if post-pubertal. Don't measure from surface of pubertal skin, you have to push down to pubic bone on side of penis for an accurate measurement. Pre-pubic fat can make a penis look much smaller than it is. Worth consulting a pediatric urologist if UR concerned.
