    Hello!

    You use "don't" when the subject is not third person singular; but you use "doesn't" when the subject is third person singular. You place them before the verb:

    I don't go
    You don't go
    We don't go
    They don't go

    But
    He doesn't go
    She doesn't go
    It doesn't go
    My mother doesn't go ....
