Predicting your ChildParents often are very curious about predicting their child's adult height. You can try to estimate it using one of the following methods: (1) Review your child's height growth curve with your pediatrician once your child is older than 2 years, and extrapolate it out to 18 years of age on the growth curve.(2) Try this: Girls are half of their adult height at 18 months of age, while boys are half of their adult height at 24 months of age.(3) If you like mathematical formulas, calculate this: For girls, take the father's height in inches and subtract 2.5 inches; then, add it to the mother's height in inches, and divide this sum by 2 to get a predicted height in inches. For boys, take the mother's height in inches and add 2.5 inches; then, add it to the father's height in inches, and divide this sum by 2 to get a predicted height in inches.Powered by RemedyConnect disclaimerDenver Data FeedMore From ParentingParenting...Adoption: How to Talk With Your Child About Being AdoptedBabysitting RemindersBedtime - The Four B'sBeyond Screen Time: A Parent’s Guide to Media UseBrushing Your Toddler's TeethBullying: It's Not OKChild Sexual AbuseChildren’s Dental Health: What You Need to KnowChoosing a PediatricianChoosing Quality Child Care: What's Best for Your Family?Connecting With your CommunityConsequences for ActionsContact InformationDinnertime Conversation StrategiesDiscipline and Your ChildDivorce and ChildrenEncourage Your Child to Be Physically ActiveEncouraging Your ChildEstablishing Chores and RoutinesEverybody Gets Mad: Helping Your Child Cope with ConflictFriends Are Important: Tips for ParentsGetting Children to Listen the First TimeGiving Children the Responsibility for their Own DinnerGiving Eye drops to your ToddlerGiving Positive Suggestions Rather Than Negative ReprimandsGrowing Independence: Tips for Parents of Young ChildrenHandling Stressful Situations with your Child EffectivelyHelping Children Help ThemselvesHelping Your School-Age Child Cope With DeathHow to Prevent Tooth Decay in Your BabyHow to Teach Children About RulesHumor Even for Vomiting IllnessesInternet and Your Family, TheIs Your Toddler Communicating With You?Listening to Kid Logic for a CompromiseMaking Morning Struggles More EnjoyableMedia HistoryMedications, Administration ofNavigating the Teen Years: Tips for ParentsNo Rewards for CryingNormal Weight and Height GuidelinesNot Giving InPacifier, Weaning fromParenting Your InfantPicky EatersPlaying Is How Toddlers LearnPoison Control HotlinePositive Reinforcement/RewardsPotty Training for BoysPotty Training for GirlsPredicting your ChildProtect Your Child…Prevent PoisoningRatings: Making Healthy Media ChoicesReading to InfantsReading to ToddlersResilience: Helping Your Children Rise Above the Challenges of LifeResponding to Children's Emotional Needs During Times of Crisis: Information for ParentsShould My Child Join a Clinical Trial?Sibling RivalrySingle ParentingSleep Problems in ChildrenStart Reading to Your Child EarlyStaying Cool When Things Heat UpSuicide Prevention: Signs and Safety PlanningTalking With Your Teen: Tips for ParentsTalking With Your Young Child About SexTantrums - Preparation is criticalTeaching Good Behavior: Tips on How to DisciplineTeen Dating Violence: Tips for ParentsTeen Suicide and GunsTeeth, Brushing ofTeethingTemper TantrumsThumbs, Fingers, and PacifiersTrampolines: What You Need to KnowTraveling with Young ChildrenTrying New FoodsWelcome to the World of Parenting!Welcoming a New Sibling: How to Help Your Child AdjustWhen Children Won't Eat VegetablesWhen to Learn About RulesYour Child is on the Move: Reduce the Risk of Gun InjuryYour Family's Mental Health: 10 Ways to Improve Mood NaturallyChoose Another Topic Select TopicBehaviorBreastfeedingEmergenciesGrowth & DevelopmentImmunization ArticlesImmunization HandoutsImmunization ScheduleIs Your Child SickMedical ConditionsMedicine DosagesNewbornsNutritionParentingSafetySpecial NeedsSports & ExerciseTeensWhat’s Going Around
