Is it correct to use the expression "get to grips with" like in the following sentence?
Child pregnancy is still a problem to get to grips with.
Thank you guys
Incidentally, is this a transitive/intransitive type of question? I am yet to see understand what those terms mean.
There is an expression "come to grips with."
It means to accept and to address a situation.
She still hasn't come to grips with the fact that her baby is a high school senior and will go to college next year.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
