Find out how tall your child will be
Click here to get Child Height Predictor. Just key-in your child’s current age, height, weight and yours also. As for me, the result is as below :
Your girl will likely be 5 ft. 3 in. at age 18.
This prediction is a “best guess” but it’s still just that — a guess. Based on the formula we used* there is a 50 percent chance that your girl’s full-grown height will be within 0.7 inches (above or below) of this prediction, and a 90 percent chance that it will be within 1.7 inches.
50% chances boleh grow up or less +0.7 inches and 90% chance boleh grow up lagi 1.7 inches. For sure she will be taller than me..!!!
THE FINE PRINT: Parents’ heights are a good predictor of a child’s adult height, but heredity only accounts for about 70 percent of what goes into deciding how tall someone will be. The other 30 percent comes from environmental factors, like eating habits (poor nutrition can “stunt” a child’s growth) and exercise patterns (a competitive gymnast may not grow to her full potential).
Sometimes a child will surprise everyone and turn out much taller or shorter than either parent. This calculator can’t account for that possibility. It also won’t work well for children who 1) are exceptionally tall, 2) are already taller than both their parents, or 3) have a condition that affects their height, such as growth hormone deficiency.
