    My (Japanese) wife felt that our daughter wasn't tall enough (despite being tiny herself) so she insisted that our daughter do jumps every day in an attempt to become taller.

    A number of jumping years later our daughter is now precisely 1cm taller than her mother and is still always the shortest person in her peer group. My conclusion is that the jumping didn't help in the slightest and that nothing overcomes genes.

    So if you're tall, there are no methods by which you can become shorter, although my (now ex) wife would tell you that if you never jump, you might get shorter.

    What can we take away from this?

    That some Japanese people have some bizarre ideas about human height and how it's decided.

    No, you really can't get shorter. But there are things you can do to look shorter. Avoid clothing with vertical lines which elongate your look. Horizontal lines in clothing will draw the eye across instead. Don't wear heels or boots with heels. Darker clothing will minimize your size, but avoid all one color. Wearing several colors will (such as a lighter-colored shirt under a suit) will provide a horizontal line that will visually reduce your size.

    Hi. Just accept yourself. God made you this way. Just accept yourself and focus on helping people or your school work. Focus on other things. You may wear flat shoes, google on colors of clothes that make you look shorter. There are many advantages of being tall. Or you can drink less milk and eat less red meat and beef.

    God bless you.

    Have your knees compressed.  It's very painful and debilitating but it will reduce your height by a couple of inches.

    Hunch over and become a hunchback.
