Every parent is interested in making sure their child is getting all he or she needs in order to grow up in a healthy and comfortable environment. As parents, we try our best to ensure our children are properly nourished, get enough sleep, and are taken care of when sick. Usually, we do this in order to have them grow as healthily as possible. Sometimes, being unsure of how well we are achieving this, we tend to compare our children to others their ages.
To help parents have some idea of how their children are doing growth-wise, in comparison to their peers, growth charts and growth percentile calculators are often available.
Growth charts are simply grids that plot a child's height according to his or her age. A growth percentile calculator uses the knowledge one has of the child's height, age, and sex to determine the child's growth in comparison to others his or her age.
