How common is gender identity disorder in high schoolers?

True GID is rare: Gender identity disorder is fairly uncommon. Some studies suggest fewer than 1 in 100, 000. However, high school being a time of identity expression may lead to greater outward expression of the disorder that has likely been present since childhood.

Could childhood height correlate with adult height?

Could childhood height correlate with adult height?

It could: Some children go into puberty relatively younger or relatively older than most of their same-gender peers. So a child's height at one point in time may not predict adult height well. This equation is better: boy's final ht = [(mom's ht + 5') + dad's ht]/2. Girl's final ht = [(dad's ht - 5') + mom's ht]/2. The final height should be within 2' (more or less) of the answer to the equation. ...Read more
