3. If you attempt to cancel your Amazon Prime free trial, you’ll be offered an extra 30 days for free.

4. A semicolon is just a fancy period; you should use it to replace a period between any two closely related independent clauses.

Many people use semicolons incorrectly (or don’t use them at all) because they have given up trying to understand them; it’s really easy to use semicolons properly when you begin to think about them as fancy periods. You should only use a semicolon to separate two independent clauses; if you wouldn’t put a period there, simply do not put a semicolon there.

Some people also use semicolons in complicated lists; however, it’s an uncommon use and you shouldn’t let yourself be confused by it. Adding semicolons to long documents is a great way to shake things up, but don’t overuse them; a reader may quickly become fatigued if you pepper too many semicolons into your text.

5. If your kids are in need of more structure, you shouldn’t give them too many warnings before doling out discipline as they’ll take the initial threat of it less seriously than they would over more consistent and immediate correction.

Kids will try to get away with as much as they can and will constantly test the limits of your authority as a parent. If you provide too many warnings it turns the situation into a game for them where they may wait until you reach a breaking point and lose your cool before listening to you.
