    We take a look at childhood growth and all the different factors which may influence it. Factors such as Genetics, normal or abnormal amounts of hormone and nutrition (under and over). These factors may affect the normal age\height\growth curve of a child in a little or very large manner. We also learn how to predict a childs final height in inches (plus-minus) by using the midpoint of the parents 2 heights and subtracting a few inches depending on the sex of the child.
