Kids generally end up between the average of their parents' heights and the height of the parent of the same sex. He may also follow your growth pattern, so if you had your growth spurt later in your teen years, he may also shoot up around the same time. There are steps you can take to ensure that your child reaches his maximum height. Growing Like a Weed Can You Help Kids Grow Taller? According to the MAGIC Foundation for Children's Growth, normal growth from age 4 to puberty is at least 2 inches per year. Girls usually have a growth spurt of 2 1/2 to 4 1/2 inches a year starting around the age of 10, or the start of puberty. Boys experience their growth spurt around the age of 12 and grow 3 to 5 inches a year. The Right Foods Can You Help Kids Grow Taller? Proper nutrition plays a large part in helping kids grow to their full potential. Make sure they get the proper minerals, vitamins, proteins, carbs and fats they need to power their little bodies. Also ensure that your child drinks enough water every day. Calcium is extremely Performance review phrases comments/ free download examples Page 1

important for growing bodies, helping the bones grow longer and stronger. According to the National Institutes of Health, kids ages 1 to 3 need 700 mg of calcium every day, ages 4 to 8 need 1,000 mg and ages 9 to 18 need 1,300 mg Sleep Tight Your child needs the proper amount of shuteye so her body has time to recharge, repair and produce growth hormones. Toddlers usually sleep 10 to 13 hours each night. School-age kids and preteens need between 10 and 12 hours each night. Your teen needs 8 1/2 to 9 1/2 hours of sleep. No matter how old your child is, try to encourage her to get to bed at the same time every night and to wake up at the same time every day -- even on weekends. Get Moving Getting the right amount of exercise keeps your child growing and can help fight obesity. According to the U.S. Department of Education, your child needs at least 60 minutes of exercise every day. Encourage your child to walk to school or the store. If you can, enroll your child in her favorite sport so she can be active in the evenings or on the weekend. Have her participate in active chores around the house -- things like raking leaves and moving the lawn, vacuuming, or dog walking. Slow Growth Check with your pediatrician if your child's growth seems to have stalled, since there may be an underlying medical problem. If your child is below the 5 percent range or over the 95 percent range for his age, your doctor may want to do further tests. Some chronic conditions or Performance review phrases comments/ free download examples Page 2

genetic disorders may impair growth. Speak to your child's doctor about possible side effects from medications as well. II. Grow taller tips Maybe you feel like your friends have suddenly hit a growth spurt and you're lagging seriously behind. Maybe the rest of your family is really tall and you're wondering if you can do anything to catch up. The truth is that a person's height is mostly determined by things out of their control,-- genes. Do know, though, that there are many factors that affect height which can be controlled, a whole battery of natural habits, techniques and foods that can enhance your ability to grow taller. So, if you are still growing, read on to learn about natural ways that work for and with you to help you grow taller. Performance review phrases comments/ free download examples Page 3 View slide

Method 1 : To Become Taller 1. 1.Consume a balanced diet. A person will look a lot shorter when having a plump body. Not only that, being fit by eating right will make you taller and feel better! o Eat plenty of lean protein. Lean protein, such as white poultry meat, fish, soy, and dairy, helps promote muscle growth and healthy bones. Simple carbohydrates such as pizza, cakes, sweets, and soda, are the stuff to stay away from. Performance review phrases comments/ free download examples Page 4 View slide

o Eat plenty of calcium. Calcium, found in leafy green vegetables such as spinach and kale, and in dairy (yogurt and milk), helps promote healthy bones.[1] o Get enough zinc. Studies, although they have been inconclusive so far, point to a possible link between zinc deficiencies and stunted growth in boys.[2] Good sources of zinc include oysters, wheat germ, pumpkin and squash seeds, lamb, peanuts, and crab.[3] o Get enough vitamin D. Vitamin D promotes bone and muscle growth in children[4], and a deficiency has been shown to stunt growth and cause weight gain in teenage girls.[5] Vitamin D can be found in fish, alfalfa, or mushrooms commonly.

2. Exercise throughout the teen years and in puberty to improve your height modestly. Do jumping exercises frequently, such as skipping, dancing and even hanging . Be active. Get out and about and work your muscles for at least 30 minutes each day. o Join a gym. Joining a gym will help give you access to a lot of great exercising and muscle-building machines. It will also keep you motivated to work out (you'll feel silly if you're not exercising in the gym). o Join a sports team. People who join sports teams can use their natural competitiveness to burn extra calories and hopefully get their bodies taller. The great thing about team Performance review phrases comments/ free download examples Page 6

sports is that half the time, you don't even realize that you're exercising. o If nothing else, walk around. If you can't find the time to do anything else, get up and walk around. Walk to the grocery store. Walk to the library. Walk to school. 3. 3 Get adequate sleep each night. Sleeping is the time when your body grows, so having plenty of sleep is equivalent to giving your body more time for growth. Get between 9 and 11 hours of sleep per night if you're a preteen or still younger than 20. Performance review phrases comments/ free download examples Page 7

o The human growth hormone (HGH) is produced naturally in our bodies, especially during deep or slow wave sleep.[6] Getting good, sound sleep will encourage the production of HGH, which is created in the pituitary gland. 4. 4 Understand that a majority of your height will be predetermined by genetics. Scientists reckon that 60% to 80% of your height is determined by genes.[7] Unfortunately, either you have the tall gene or you don't. That's not to say that you can't grow tall if you have parents who are on the shorter side; it just means that Performance review phrases comments/ free download examples Page 8

having shorter parents means you're more likely to be on the short side. 5. 5 Try not to stunt your growth. There might not be a lot you can do to increase your height, but you can take several steps to make sure your natural height isn't shortened by environmental influences. Drugs and alcohol are both thought to contribute to stunted growth if they're ingested while you're young, and malnutrition can keep you from reaching your full height, as well. o Does caffeine really stunt your growth? Scientific study shows that, no, caffeine does not stunt growth.[8] Caffeine Performance review phrases comments/ free download examples Page 9

does, however, have a higher chance of keeping you from sleeping soundly and regularly. Kids and adolescents needs about 9-10 hours of sleep, and caffeine may hurt your ability to get that much sleep. o Does smoking really stunt your growth? The effects of smoking and second-hand smoke on body mass index (BMI) are inconclusive. According to Columbia University's Internet Health Resource, "Although the studies that have been done are largely inconclusive, the available research suggests that children who smoke or who are exposed to second-hand smoke are shorter than those who do not smoke or are children of non-smokers."[9] o Do steroids really stunt your growth? Absolutely. Anabolic steroids inhibit bone growth in young children and teens, along with lowering sperm count, decreasing breast size, elevating blood pressure and putting you at higher risk of heart attack.[10] Children and teens who suffer from asthma and use inhalers that dispense small doses of the steroid budesonide are, on average, half an inch shorter than those not treated with steroids.[11] 6. Expect to be in your twenties when you stop growing. A lot of young kids look at themselves and ask, "Have I finished growing yet?" If you're under 18, the answer is probably "No!"[12] If you haven't stopped puberty yet, then you haven't stopped growing.[13] Try to be thankful that you have a little time to grow taller instead of worrying about how tall you will be.
