Is this sentence grammatically correct?

''Everyone has a need to feel accepted and being cared about and it is family and friends that play a vital role in individual’s lifestyle choices.''

  • English -

    It's a compound-complex sentence, and it needs one comma added. Can you see where?

    "...has a need to feel accepted and being cared about..."
    This part needs to have parallel form. How will you fix it?

  • English -

    would that be better: Everyone has a need to feel being accepted and cared about, and it is family and friends that play a vital role in individual’s lifestyle choices

  • English -

    It would be best to eliminate "being." Substitute "who" for "that."

  • English -

    Almost perfect!

    Remove "being" in the first clause, and add "an" before "individual" in the second clause. Then everything will be fine.

  • English -

    so it would be this way: Everyone has a need to feel accepted and cared about, and it is family and friends that play a vital role in an individual’s lifestyle choices

  • English -

    Yes.
