    Default It can help remind me/myself

    Writing letters of apology to teachers can help remind ______ not to behave badly in class.

    This sentence is taken from a short passage about 'my writing' letters of apology to teachers. The given answer is 'myself'. But I think not 'myself' but 'me' should be used here. Am I right?

    Thank you in advance.

    I am not a teacher.

    You are right. To use "myself" in that place would require a "me" earlier: "Writing letters of apology to teachers can help me remind myself not to behave badly in class."
