Can we predict how tall a child can grow based on the height of the parents?

It is generally believed that genetic factors account for 70% to 80% of a child’s height. Use the height of the parents to predict the genetic height of the child:

Boy’s predicted height = (parent’s height + mother’s height)/2+6.5 (cm)

Girl’s predicted height = (parent’s height + mother’s height)/2-6.5 (cm)

Note that genetic height is only the height that a child can achieve in theory. Whether it can eventually reach or exceed the genetic height depends on acquired environmental factors, disease factors, etc.
