### Is 9stone overweight for a 11 year old?

If you measure how tall he/she is, you can work out their 'bmi'.
This tells you whether they are overweight, underweight, normal,
obese etc. However, by the sound of it, no. I don't believe this
weight is overweight.
To work out his/her 'bmi', the formula is:
Body Mass Index (BMI) = weight ÷ (height)²
Obese = 30 and over Overweight = 25 and over (BMI)
Underweight = 20 and Under

### Is 188 pounds a good weight for a 5' 7 13-year-old?

No, 188 pounds is not a good weight for you. According to BMI
(Body Mass Index) standards, you are either very close to
overweight, or obese (depending on your gender). For males, those
statistics are considered obese (91 out of 90 percentile, 90 being
obese), and for a female, it is just below obese (85 out of 90
percentile, 90 being obese).
