    Unhappy I'd like to know the meaning.

    Hi~ there. It's started hailing here.

    Please take a look at this phrase.
    'One of my favorite movies growing up was The Wizard of OZ.'
    In this phrase, the underlined expression's meaning is not exact to me.
    Does that mean 'movies for growing children'?
    If you answer my question I'd deeply appreciate your kindness.

    It could be 'One of my favourite movies while growing up was The Wizard of Oz' but better to write "One of my favourite movies while I grew up was The Wizard of Oz' ...hope that helps..

    I prefer 'when I was growing up...'
