Don’t Skip – Making a habit requires sticking to the schedule. Even when there is a special occasion or if your child is tired, we need to reinforce the importance of brushing.
Make it Fun – Songs that last 2 minutes will help. Reading to your child while they brush may help, too. Even puppet brushing their teeth can be motivating.
Learn by Example – Children emulate their parents. Brush with your children and they will want to be just like you.
Trial and Error – Try different kinds of toothpaste until you find the one your child likes. Try using the smallest amount they will allow and work your way up to the recommended amount. Even a tiny amount is better than no toothpaste.
Don’t Give Up – The pain of cavities and lifelong dental issues is more costly and damaging than dealing with these few moments of brushing twice a day.Leave a reply →
