the kids had their yearly check-ups today & according to my daughter's stats she is in the 92% on the charts for her height. she'll be 10 in august & is 57.8 inches (or 4' 9.8") yet in her grade if you lined all the kids up according to height she's be in the bottom 25%, not the top. so either the majority of her class is off the charts & are abnormally tall or the charts are incorrect. i'm just under 5'4" & there are a great many kids in her class that aren't much shorter than me. there are many that are my height & some are taller. so with more than half of her class taller than she is how is she 92% on the chart?
**after a few of you lovely mamas suggested the charts were outdated i went back to look at the sheet to see if there was any kind of date on there. the cdc charts (weight, stature, bmi) was last updated in 2000. so yeah, i'd say they're outdated. while 2000 isn't that long ago kids are maturing (physically not mentally) faster now then they were then. think it's time the cdc looked into mor updated info!
