    It isn't a standard pairing, but it might mean that the person should become more mature and leave their complaints behind. What's the actual context?

    SNatalia, welcome to the forum.

    Note that I have amended your thread title - there was no need to write all the words in capital letters. It's the online equivalent of shouting.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    It occurs to me that it could also describe a physical maturation, ie., get taller and bulkier.
