    HELP+ INFINITIVE or INFINITIVE WITHOUT TO or "-ING" FORM

    Hi!

    Let us see my examples:

    1 - I always help my mom making the dinner.
    2 - I always help my mom prepare the dinner.
    3 - I always help my mom to cook the dinner.

    By the way, is the use of the article "the" in the sentences correct?


    THANK YOU!

    3 - I always help my mom cook the dinner. (no "to")

    By the way, is the use of the article "the" in the sentences correct? If you help her cook dinner every day, omit "the". If it is a special dinner, for example Christmas dinner, keep "the".


    THANK YOU!
