Quick reference medical handouts used by Pediatric offices


My son would like to know how tall he will be (educated guess). He is currently 5'4" and 115-120lbs, and just turned 13. I'm (mother) 5'8" and his father is 5'10". Isn't there a way to estimate this? My side of the family is all very tall and his fathers is average to slightly above average. Thank you.
    
By looking at your son’s growth chart for height, you will see that at thirteen he is in the 75th percentile for height. Should he continue on the same percentile line, then you can see he will be around 71.5 inches when he stops growing. Remember, every child has his or hers own growth pattern, so there is no way of predicting if he will continue to grow at the present rate.

There are two other methods of predicting adult height. One is to add his parents' heights together, divide by two, then add three inches for a boy (or subtract three for a girl). Using this method, your son will be 72 inches as an adult. Another method is using their height at age three. In boys, the three year old height is 54% of their adult height. In girls, it is 57% of their adult height
