Predict your child’s height

Parents often wonder how tall their kids are going to be? One easy and quite certain way to predict a child’s height is to take the average of the parents' height. So how tall are you and how tall is daddy? The child’s height is most likely going to be 2 inches above or below this average. Girls tend to be 2 inches below this average, while boys on the opposite, tend to be 2 inches above this average.

Another way to calculate your child’s height is to double his or her height at age of 2. My son is 2 years old and he’s already 39 inches. Based on this formula, he’ll be 78 inches as an adult.
