Grammar Exercise- Thecommoncase

When primary caretakers release negative attitudes towards their child, it increases the risk of their child become more hostile towards others. Not only does hostility towards others result from child abuse, a large number of children raised by abusive parents also harm themselves. This negative behavior occurs when children do not learn appropriate techniques for handling life’s disappointments. If a child is not raised with coping skills, they’re much more likely to act inappropriately than if the child had developed these coping skills. The effect of poor parenting as reported by Dr. Geoffrey Dahmer in “The Bully Papers,” is that everyone gets the child they deserve.

    —I like what you’ve done with the first sentence, but once you elect to go with plurals for the caretakers, it’s probably safest to go global. No reason the children can’t be plural too.
    —Rule 4B (That singular child problem catches up with you the next time you invoke it.)
    —Rule 14 (These number disagreements are hard to avoid.)
