Can it not mean we raise our children? We help them get older? Starame = something about old.

No. Staráme has nothing to do with starý, though sometimes many centuries ago there might have been some connection. Starat se is to take care of something. It does not have to be a person, you can take care of a building, flowers, animals and yes, people.

Is svoje used more frequently than své in real life like moje and tvoje are based on my experience?
