    bring up VS grow up

    My mother bring me up when I was child.
    I grow up now and left my hometown to move to city.

    What's the difference between "bring up" and "grow up"?
    Are they same?

    Re: bring up VS grow up

    Your sentences have the wrong tenses. That seems to be a recurrent problem of yours.

    My mother brought me up when I was a child (past tense).
    I have grown up now and have left my hometown to move to the city (present perfect).

    Re: bring up VS grow up

    I would like to remind the OP that the simple present does not apply to something that (has) already happened, but I am not a teacher.
