How Tall Will I be When I am Fully Grown?

Height predictors involve many factors. The influence on a child’s growth potential may be influenced by their overall heatlh, nutritional status, and genetic potential. While there is no magic way to look into the future to see how tall your child will be there are some height predictors that can give you a pretty good idea of what your child’s height would be. The first predictor is based on their genetic potential which is based on their parents midparental height. Another is Two Years Two Method which uses simple linear regressions and doubles a child’s height at age two year. Another predictor is to take your child’s current height and where they are on the growth curve right now to predict their future height. Linda S ltskinne
