How to increase growth hormone naturally in KIDS

My question is the same as the one that was asked over here

but how I can apply this for a 9 year old boy who is 2 inches below 5th percentile for his age?

My questions:

1.He sleeps now on average only 9.5 - 10 hours (10-11 hrs recommended). Could this be affecting his growth? Should I try to add another hour to his sleep length?

2. I know insulin will suppress growth hormone production. But kids need carbs. What suppose to be my strategy for dinner? Should I feed him lowcarb dinner 2 hours before his bed time? Or normal dinner with plenty of carbs 3 hrs before bed would be ok? What to do when he will ask for a snack before going to bed? Nuts and jerky kind snacks? Usually he is done eating dinner 1.5 - 2 hours before falling asleep.

3. Intermittent fasting.... How important is this for kids? How to implement it? Skipping breakfast on weekends?

4. I can't imagine him doing heavy weight lifting. Is this really important? Would it be enough to do high intensity interval training in addition to just kids activities?

Maybe he's just going to be short (nothing wrong with that!) Maybe he's simply developing later (nothing wrong with that either!)
