    bring up/ rocket

    Dear teachers,

    Would you tell me your opinion about the interpretations of the expression in bold in the following sentences?

    The cost of bringing up a child has rocketed by over a third in the past five year.

    bring up = raise from childhood, rear

    rocket = dramatic rise

    Thank you for your efforts.
