    About the function of coordinating conjunction?

    HI.

    Studying coordinating conjunction, I've found many explanations that say 'coordinating conjunctions connect words, phrases, or clauses only in the same word class.'

    An example here so that I can show you what they say exactly.

    They say that ' I am a boy and good.' this sentence is wrong because 'a boy' and 'good' is not in the same word class.
    I think similar sentences 'I was good but in need of rest.' and 'Don't forget to remember me and falling in love with me.' have no fault.

    Who's right?

    You're both right, even though your examples aren't the most natural.
