Revised: 

If he cannot grow up tall, it’s a problem. Once, my son told me, “when I grow up I want to be as tall as my father”. I said, “No, you should be taller than him”. My daughter is normal/average for her age. We have let our son try a lot of sizes and my husband chose a lot of shoes for my son.

No, only small/minor things. My daughter sometimes will tell us that her brother did some minor things. And if they are not serious/are minor things, I will tell my daughter to fix it herself. My mother can speak well for her age. My son is slow because he has a developmental problem. He is six years old but his skills in sports and speech are just like my daughter, roughly more than 3 years old/are underdeveloped, like my daughter’s level.
