Grammar Lesson O’ The Day

I have a hard time remembering when to use affect and effect.  Here is a cute little reminder yanked from a comment on Copyblogger:

“Parental behavior affects children” = If you’re a lax disciplinarian, you’ll raise a brat.

“Parental behavior effects children’ = Sexual intercourse causes pregnancy.

I loves me a good English lesson.
