Hi there!

 

I'm studying about CARE FOR and I need some help.

If I use CARE FOR meaning LIKE, then I should use it only in negative sentences or questions. For instance: My husband doesn't care for chocolate or Do you care for raw fish?

 

But if I use CARE FOR meaning TO HAVE THE SUPERVISION OF, then I can use it in the affirmative. For instance: She cares for her grandparents.

 

My question is "Am I right"? Please, give your opinion.

 

Thanks heaps

 

Julia
