commonly confused words

0

Grammarly corrected my writing. I wrote, "She laughed and explained to him that mother needed to eat too." The editor suggested I use the word "to" in place of "too". I believe that is incorrect. The way I wrote it is correct. Will someone validate this? Confused.

See example:

She laughed and explained to him that mother needed to eat too.

'Too' seems to be correct for me as well. You don't always need a comma before 'too' at the end of a sentence, but it may fit here to give a slight pause for emphasis. 'Mother' should be capitalized because it is being used as a proper noun.

 

She laughed and explained to him that Mother needed to eat, too.
