How tall will I be?
Children grow about 5 centimetres each year between age 4 and the start of puberty.
We’re Not Exactly Sure
It is not possible to predict exactly how tall you will be until you stop growing, but there are a few things that can help us to guess.
One is how tall your family is – taller parents tend to have taller children the same way that parents with blue eyes are more likely to have children with blue eyes.
The second important part is the timing of puberty.
Children who start puberty earlier may be taller in childhood but they stop growing earlier. Some children have a growth spurt late and end up being an average height even though they were always small as children.
If you are worried that you are growing too quickly or too slowly you can talk to your doctor.
