Can we start the sentence with or?

While or can be used at the start of a sentence — like all conjunctions — it is, admittedly, a little harder to use than most. Unless emphasising something to the reader, it’s still a good idea to avoid starting a sentence with or just in case you get those awkward sentence fragments.

Is because I said so a valid reason?

“Because I said so” is actually an appropriate phrase here. The key is to say it calmly after you’ve given a direction clearly and explained your reason once. After it’s said, just go do something else. Don’t allow yourself to be pulled into an argument with your child.

Can I start a question with or?

Starting a sentence with or is very informal and not something you should do in an essay or a professional context. The latter is a good example of something you would say, but not write.
