I heard the conjunction 'As' even when used to describe the reason for something implies it is happening at the same time. So, I'm wondering if the following sentence is a little strange to hear for the same reason.
- As your dad studied hard back in high school, he has the right to tell you to do the same. (X / O) ?
If I replaced 'As' with 'Because' at the begining of the sentence, would it be correct grammatically?
