Boa tarde,
I think that means, to change a little, to overgrow something... And get grown-up :D
They talk about some stuff that's old and obsolete maybe, so they should change :P

It looks like it translates directly to English. "Grow up (a little)!" means "Act more mature" or "Act your age". So the posters in that article are basically telling people or things to stop being petty and immature.

So, in the first example:

Who grows up? The teacher or the student?

The teacher. In each example, whatever comes before "grandissez un peu" is the thing being told to grow up.

Merci. I re-read everything and made more sense this way, but I still expected a comma before that.

Well, it's Twitter, so users aren't necessarily going to add commas as long as they expect their target audience to understand what they mean. :P

O que é que "métamorphosé dans son bagne" que tem nesse tuíte?

https://twitter.com/leJDD/status/1031095171612459008

É alguma expressão idiomática? Eu imaginei que ele foi tomar banho e virou outra pessoa, tentei ler o texto completo pra ver se entendia mas eles cobram.

Boa tarde Osias!

Just like Dormousse559 said, it's the teachers that have to "grow up".

I just want to add that it's an expression mainly used by younger people in France.

It's kind of a way to make fun of someone, or a category of people. Or you can use it when you are exasperated by someone or something.

Like in this situation, obviously the student knows that teachers are mature people (they are grown-ups), so he is not really asking them to become more mature. It's just a funny or mocking way to show that he doesn't agree with his teacher giving him 9.9/10 instead of 10. He thinks that's stupid.

Espero que você entenda! :)
