Every parent enjoys watching their children grow. Sometimes, they even wish they could predict their children’s height. Therefore, this formula does precisely that! If you want to calculate your child’s height, simply use this formula from the 1970s that it is based on parents’ height:
Mother’s height+ father’s height+13 cm divided by 2 will give you your son’s height
Mother’s height+ father’s height-13 cm divided by 2 will give you your daughter’s height
Of course, not all your children will have the same height, neither the ones of the same gender. Height in adulthood decreases in younger brothers and sisters, and younger children grow slower. Additionally, there are other factors that contribute to height such as nutrition, as well as genetics that determines around 60 to 80% of the maximum height, according to the New York Times.
