Students often make mistakes when using the word "because". You can't use "because" to connect ideas in two separate sentences. Put both the main idea and the reason in the same sentence.
Which sentence is NOT correct?
- Some children behave badly at school because their parents are too lenient at home.
- Because parents are often too lenient at home, discipline in schools is becoming more difficult to enforce.
- Children's behaviour is getting worse nowadays. Because parents are not strict enough.
