Height Calculator  Children's Height Predictor


Children Height Growth PredictionA child's height is controlled by the genetics but the genetic height is not an absolute. It gives us a range and the exact height of your child would depend upon many other factors like nutrition, stress and general health status. There's no definite way to predict a child's adult height precisely. However, some formulas can provide an estimate for child growth. Here's a popular example:
Most children will reach an adult height within 4 inches (10 centimeters) of this estimation. The average height for each sex within a population varies significantly, with men being usually taller than women. Women ordinarily reach their greatest height at a younger age than men, because puberty generally occurs earlier in women than in men. Vertical growth stops when the long bones stop growing long. A child's height based on parental heights is subject to regression toward the mean, which means that extremely tall or short parents are likely to have correspondingly taller or shorter offspring, but their offspring will also likely be closer to average height than the parents themselves. Children grow fastest as infants and toddlers, tapering to a slowly declining rate, and then during the puberty there is another growth spurt, a rapid rise to a second maxima, which occours at around 1112 years for female, and 1314 years for male. The puberty growth spurt is followed by a steady decline to zero. On average, female height doesn't grow after 15 or 16 years age, whereas the male growth continues for approximately 3 more years, till about 1820 years of age. You can use of child height prediction calculator above to find out the approximate height of your boy or girl child as an adult.
