What stops a child from growing taller?

A child is said to be developing at a slow rate if they are not growing at the typical rate for their age. There is a possibility that the delay is the result of an underlying health problem, such as a lack of growth hormone. There is a hereditary component to some growth issues. There are also conditions that are brought on by hormone imbalances or improper digestion of meals.
