How to vertically align the child divs in a parent div?

So I have 1 parent div and 4 child divs. I have horizontally aligned those child divs in the parent div, however they are not vertically aligned, it's like a graph the way the child divs are placed.
How do I vertically align them?



.servicesContent {
border: solid red 2px;
font-family: arial;
width: 70%;
margin: 0 auto;
}
.servicesH1 {
text-align: center;
color: #3a414e;
}
.servicesContent h2 {
color: #3a414e;
}
#h3 {
color: #3a414e;
}
.contentLists {
border: solid green 2px;
width: 100%;
text-align: center;
}
#lists {
display: inline-block;
text-align: center;
padding: 5px;
margin: 5px;
border: 1px solid blue;
height: 190px;
}

<div class="servicesContent">
<h1 class="servicesH1">Services</h1>
<h2>Help!</h2>
<p>Child Divs are not vertically aligned</p>

Answer

Try this

 #lists {
                  display: inline-block;
                  text-align: center;
                  padding: 5px;
                  margin: 5px;
                  border: 1px solid blue;
                  height: 190px;
             vertical-align: middle;
                }
