If a child participates in cooking classes, they will develop intellectually as they will learn how food affects growth.

Do I need a comma before 'as'? I think I do because my understanding is if 'as' means 'because' it wil require a comma. Is this correct?

  • 1) Why "if 'as' means 'because' it will require a comma". Who said that? 2) Why? How it "looks" is not a good measure. – user3169 Mar 20 '17 at 2:01
  • If you don't want your comma questions to keep getting closed, you need to look up some online guidance on comma usage. FIgure out which rules apply to your sentences. If you are stumped, cite which rules you are trying to apply and tell us where you found those rules.
