There are various factors that can affect the growth and development of a child. The common characters that affect the growth and development can be varied in different children. Some of the important factors can include some basic factors like the parental genes. The culture and the country in which the person lives can also have a major role in influencing the growth and development of the child.

The various other factors that play a role in the growth and development of the child are listed below:

1. Nutrition:

Nutrition is very important in the growth and development of the child. This also depends on the country and the financial status of the child's family. There are many children in families living in very underdeveloped countries where the child may not get enough nutrition. This causes malnutrition which plays a major role in deterring the development and growth of the child. Malnutrition can cause various diseases like beriberi, rickets, protein energy malnutrition and many other diseases, These diseases cause the child's development and growth to be limited.

2. Affluence:

Affluence and the parents' social status also affect the growth and development of the child. Children of parents who are affluent are generally used to a safe lifestyle. They are given good food and care. This helps to make them very healthy and so their growth and development is better when compared to children of less affluent families.

3. Emotional status:

The emotional status of the child plays a very important role in the growth and development of the child. When a child is emotionally strong, then the child will grow up to be strong. Many of the diseases are caused by increased stress. The emotional status of the child may cause the growth and development of the child.

4. Hormonal factors:

The role of hormones in the growth and development of the child is very important. There are many important hormones that cause increased growth in the child. When the hormones have abnormalities in their secretion, the growth of the child may also be affected. This can lead to various disorders including stunted growth, decreased mental growth of the child. These are some of the important roles played by hormones in the growth and development of the child.

5. Maternal diseases:

Maternal diseases are very important in maintaining the growth and development of the child. Many maternal diseases can be passed on to the child. There can be cases where the mother was suffering from a certain diseases and when it is passed on to the child, it causes the growth and development of the child to be affected.

6. Sex of the child:

The growth and development of the child also depends on the s*x of the child. If the child is a male, the growth of the child is different from the growth and development of the female child. The male child usually weighs heavier and is taller than the girl child of the same age.
