i've tried to change this sentice at first i had.. my grandmother lived close to my father so i walked there and waited for my mom to pick me up. i dont understand what im doing wrong or what i need to fix. for that matter i've never even herd the term sentance squinters?
I walked and waited for my mom to pick me up.
I believe a squinter is when you have a word that doesn't clearly attach itself to the other parts of the sentence. Were you walking and waiting at the same time? Perhaps you were pacing? Your original sentence was closer, I think. Try this:
My grandmother lived close to my father. So I walked to her house and then waited for my mom to pick me up there.
(BTW, you & I share the same last name. Not a common spelling, so I had to mention it.)
