Re: 2 &1/2 wont brush teeth HELP

Hi There,

 

First, I want to remind you that kids under the age of 8 don't even have the skills to brush their teeth correctly. Our dentist told us we should be doing it for them.

 

Make her feel in control, take her to pick out all of her dental goodies. Lead by example. Not the best idea, but this worked:  My husband has a friend that has no teeth because he never took care of them. My husband made sure the kids knew that and asked his friend to explain to the what happened. His friend was happy to do it because he didn't have anyone to teach him how important it was when he was a kid:smileysad:
