My father and I are both 170 cm tall, But I look down upon the man in a psychological sense, and would very much like to look down on him in a physical sense.

Yes.  My dad is currently around 174cm and he's 61.  His ID shows 178cm.  He lost a few cm due to aging. 

I'm 168 cm.

yes, my mother is 164cm, my dad around 178cm.

My original final height was 151cm.  After +10cm on femurs I am standing at 161cm.  Still looking forward to do my femurs though.

I understand how you feel.  It sucks! I'm about 6 cm shorter than my dad, which I've struggled to accept.  I'm approximately 19 cm taller than my mom, though.  My height is exactly the height that is expected from the midparental height calculation method.  However, my siblings are around my dad's height, which has contributed to my neurosis.  It makes me wonder if I reached my highest possible height.

Anyway, you and others who are 6-7 cm shorter than your dads, do you have siblings who are slightly taller than you? Replies are appreciated!

Hi,

I thought the discrepancy I am having with my dad in height is huge until I read some of the posts on here.  My dad is 5'11 and my mom is only 4'9.  My dad is considered tall for our race.  Based on the calculation for the midpoint, I should be at 5'4 (I think) and I'm at 5'5.  That's pretty closed.  My brother is either 5'10 or 5'11 and both my sisters are 5'3.  I'm getting my tib/fib and femur done soon to get to 5'10 or 5'11 if my body allows.  Thank you for sharing.
