Getting kids to do what they don’t want to do is always a challenge, but when it comes to their oral health there’s no room for ifs, ands, or buts. It’s all about having a routine and sticking to it.
“You may be tempted to let your child skip brushing after a long day or during times when your normal schedule is off (like vacation), but keep at it. The more second nature brushing becomes the easier it will be to make sure your child is brushing twice a day for two minutes.”
Skipping a Brush Should Never Be an Option
Wake up in the morning—brush your teeth. Getting ready for bed—brush your teeth. No matter what kind of a day they’re going to have or have had, they’ll feel better with a fresh clean mouth. Their teeth need attention every single day, twice a day. So never make brushing their teeth an option.
