    raise families

    I've heard "raise a kid(child)" as the meaning of "bring up", but "raise a family" includes adults, sounding awkward. Does it make sense?

    ex)This means that instead of paying attention to modern architectural trends, people simply built their homes in any way they wanted, adapting their style to the natural surroundings.
    Where ancient people once led simple lives, modern people now raise families and run small shops and accommodations.
