We all want our kids to brush their teeth – and eventually, do it without our help or prodding. If you have a young one, the help may be necessary … the prodding may not be.
Instead of pleading and prodding … try making it a game.
As in, “Do you want to brush your teeth like a bear or like a dinosaur?”
[Note: not brushing teeth is NOT an option.]
Your child might love to growl and bare teeth while the brushing gets done. Or s/he may choose another animal.
Give it a try and let me know it goes. I totally care! ~ Laine
