How Would I Write a Cause and Effect Essay on My grandmother?

QUESTION
How Would I Write a Cause and Effect Essay on My grandmother?
I have to write a Cause and Effect essay on my grandmother and how she was a big influence on me growing up. Any help?

ANSWER
The “cause” is what she did and the “effect” is the impact it had on you. So, for instance, let’s say she insisted that you practice playing the violin/the piano/the trumpet and today you can play that instrument pretty well. Maybe she took you to church every Sunday and now you have a faith that sustains you. Maybe she taught you to sew, to cook, to budget your money, to shop for a bargain, to have good manners, to be kind to people, whatever. Maybe she provided love and stability when your parents couldn’t. Maybe she was an immigrant who left her own country so that her children and grandchildren could have a better education and better life — and now you do. You have to decide where she’s had the most impact on your life.
