Grammar - Using full stops

Using full stops

A full stop ends a sentence. A sentence is a complete statement usually
containing a verb. Full stops are also used to indicate abbreviations such
as Oct. Mon. Rev. where the abbreviation did not contain the first and last
letter. Today, most people do not use a full stop after an abbreviation.

Look at these examples of the use of full stops. Read both aloud. What
effect does the use of full stops have?

work hard to support our family they say that it's more important for me to
read books than spend my time on an expensive phone they don't understand
the pressure my friends put on me to have a mobile friends or family, how
should l choose?
