    Also he is very strict whit his other children.

    I have two questions concerning the following sentence, namely:

    1) can you begin a sentence with "also" ?
    2) should't a comma be put after "also" ?

    Also he is very strict whit his other children.



    Thank you

    Alternatively, you can write:
    He is also very strict with his other children.

    Thank you.
    1) Yes, you can begin a sentence with "Also".
    2) I would put a comma after "Also".

    The sentence you are querying should directly follow the words "... the following sentence".

    Note my corrections to your post, marked in red. Don't put a space before a question mark, start every sentence with a capital letter and end every sentence with a punctuation mark.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
