Can bad posture affect how you grow as a child?

In short - yes

Children
While very young child posture may be a mere reflection of any present musculoskeletal problems, the pre-teens and teenagers may have certain habits and behaviors that affect their physique. Stooping is common and leads to neck and back problems. Sitting on the floor in "reverse Indian style" may lead to excessive lack of mobility of the hip joints. High heels lead to changed lordotic curvature.

My child has a bump on lower neck/back like someone with years of bad posture but she is only 7 and has JRA. Is this normal?

May or may not be OK

Juvenile_rheumatoid_arthritis
I need more info. Is it vey hard like a bone? A back bone joint deformity causing a bump in JRA is rare, but if it feels like a bone, it should be checked out. Does it move? Then it may be a lymph node. It may be a normal variant of a spinous process that comes out from the backbone v ertebra. If it is causing pain, or makes him uncomfortable to move, he needs to be examined by his doctor.

How can I fix bad posture?

Bad habits

Body-posture
Bad posture is simply a bad habit. You need to modify your "behavior" and consciously correct posture. Imagine balancing a book on your head when you walk/sit/stand. This is the best awareness exercise I know. Also, do you really have bad posture? Or is it Scheuermann's kyphosis which is a structural deformity of your spine which can be mistaken for posture? Xrays or exam would help to determine.
