    It doesn't mean anything to me. It's not an idiom or a phrasal verb.

    Re: What does "grow along with" mean?

    I think that '...along with' in such a context means the same as 'in a company with' or 'at the same time'

    I'm not an English teacher, so I can only refer to dictionaries.

    Did Weaver67's explanation fit the context of the sentence you were confused by, Mahtab62. We would all be interested to see the sentence containing that phrase so we too can see how it was used.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: What does "grow along with" mean?

    Excuse me... I'd like to respectfully suggest that perhaps the sentence has already been presented as a part of the initial question. I suppose it was "I like to grow along with you." So, that was the context I refered to in my previous message here.
    Being not as experienced at English as most of the people here who is native speakers and even native English teachers, I admit, of course, that I could make a mistake... Perhaps the meaning I've submited isn't really relevant to the context given.
    If it is the case, than all that I can do - just join the primary question and wonder whether the phrase can make any other sense or not to make one at all.
