Hello this is Dr. Stan and I will assist you with your question today. I am U.S. trained,
Board Certified and I have 32 years of patient experience. I am happy to help you. I'm sorry you are concerned about your children's growth pattern.
Thank you for your very interesting question. Your children, especially your son is on the small side for his age, but his parents, your husband and yourself are not giants, so his height will partially be dependent on his genetics. What is disturbing is his lack of signs of puberty. Your daughter will most likely remain petite and that should present no problem for her. Please, may I strongly suggest you take your son to a Pediatrician and better yet to a Pediatric Endocrinologist, if one is available. He may benefit from evaluation and growth hormone treatment. Typically girls develop faster than boys, but your son should at least have some pubic hair growth by this age.
I hope this is helpful.
