# Height Calculator: You Even Could Predict Your Height at Age 2

Yes, it is possible to predict height at age 2, but certainly, the child of very tall parents both on the mother and father side stands a better chance of growing tall in the future; perhaps as much as the parents. There are many methods of how to increase height; these include healthy living, stretch exercises, eating well, avoiding stress, etc. Genetics, however, is a key factor in estimating how tall a person would be many years later. In other words, the gene transferred to the child at birth – which cannot be changed – is critical to determining the eventual height. So, the child of parents who are not tall might just end up being short also – this rule, however, does not apply 100% of the time even though almost certain.

### Just double your height at 2

The popular method of using a home-made height calculator to predict your child’s height at the age of two is an old method which parents use to determine the eventual height of their child. The present height of the child at 2 years of age is recorded and multiplied by two; the result is a pointer to know how tall the child would be in the end. This method has not been attributed to any particular source or confirmed by scientists; but it sure does work for a lot of families.

### Alternative linear regression method

Using linear regression to determine a child’s future height is another popular method. You may not need to do the entire math yourself as there are several websites that does this. A good one is http://www.prokerala.com/kids/child-height-predictor.php. Here, parents can almost accurately predict the future height of their kid through linear regression by entering simple values like the present age, weight, and height, and also the parent’s height, etc. The result is always astonishing. Even though not exactly accurate in some cases, the proximity to the actual eventual height can be very close indeed.

### The limit of height calculator with genetics

But understanding how genetics, nutrition, healthy living, and stress blend to determine a child’s height is important. The height of the mother and father is a major determinant – though not 100% accurate to determine how tall a child would be. Also, the region of the world the child grows up in is another factor (e.g., kids born in the Netherlands are more likely to hit the 6 feet mark compared to those born in Vietnam). The same applies to nutrition and healthy living. A child who gets a minimum of 9 ? hours of sleep daily is said to be on the right track; eating of plenty vegetables which releases calcium, protein-filled food like meat and eggs; and also dietary supplements might influence the chances of the child growing to the maximum height the genes can allow.

### Conclusion

Doubling the height of child at two years of age as an indicator of how tall that child would eventually be may not be a conventional method of determining height; but records and past experiences all over the world has shown that it truly works. This explains why it is very popular today and is helping parents to quickly attack any possible deficiency in height even while the child is still a toddler. And thanks to the internet, parents can now sit in the comfort of their homes and use the linear regression method to determine the possible height of the child. These services are free and has helped millions to achieve their aims. How to grow taller can be complex, but using the age 2 height calculator method can help in that quest just as it has helped others in the past.

9. Hi there!

Very interesting article. I’ve started to be concerned about my health lately; my father is 177cm and my mother is 158cm. I am a boy, two months from being 18. At the current time I am 166cm, a pretty recent check up in december(’13) gave me this number. Another check up, standardized for people my age where I live gave me the same result: in autumn 2012. Then I was told I could grow another cm or 2.
So it seems I’ve stopped growing, but this isn’t anything I am willing to accept yet. What I’m concerned about is whether there may be some vicious auto immune disease inhibiting my growth? Or perhaps I’m living a too stressful life? Should I perhaps go and see a doctor?
