Sorry man, but if you want a decent reponse you need to ask a decent question

Try expanding and explaining things like
-Age
-Why you need Weights
-Your Weight
-Current Strenght
-Equipment available to you
-Dedication

weight training is fine for kids of any ages it is just a rumor that weight training stunts linear growth, when it actually has no effect on it....

Plus that you don't actually need weights to build your body, posture, strength, etc. are all important, which is why you see little guys being able to hold off big guys.

If you've got a whole gym in your garage someone in your family must work out? Dad or brother maybe? Just ask them if they could help you to start out, like make sure you do everything with proper form because that's all the really matter at first.
