Should is used following the format: subject + should + infinitive.

1) Use should when giving advice. Ex: You should rest. You have a big day tomorrow.

2) Use should for things that are not right or are not expected. Ex: Why isn't she here? She should be since it is her duty time.

3) Use should after a series of verbs, particularly: propose, insist, recommend, suggest and demand. Ex: I insist that you should go.
