In brief: Diet and Exercise

It is normal for children to have regular growth spurts in their youth.
Maintaining a healthy and well balanced diet is crucial to their development. Let your child exercise and play regularly to develop musculature and bones appropriately. If the child has "growing pains", tylenol/children's advil/children's Motrin can ease the discomfort/.
