Getting your kids to brush their teeth every night is never an easy feat. Fortunately with these 4 tips getting your kids to brush their teeth doesn’t have to end in a civil war.
1. Get Them a New Toothbrush
Kids love their favorite cartoons and you love your kids brushing their teeth. Bring the two together! Buy your child a toothbrush with their favorite character on it, and they will be much more willing to scrub their pearly whites! Get them an electric toothbrush with their favorite character on it and you’ll be the coolest mom on the block!
2. Say Buh-Bye to Mint Toothpaste
Kick that boring mint toothpaste to the curb! Kids like fun flavors like strawberry, watermelon, or bubblegum. So spend some quality time with your children and take them to the store so they can pick their favorite flavor toothpaste. Not only will they love the taste, you’ll love spending time with them and not having to battle it out when it comes time to brush their teeth!
3. Let Your Kids be Conquerors with Disclosing Tablets
Kids love conquering and accomplishing anything and everything. With Disclosing Tablets, kids can conquer brushing their teeth! These tablets temporarily stain the plaque on your kids teeth pink so that children pay more attention while brushing and get instant gratification when they see that they got rid of the pink on their teeth-it’s like magic! Not only that, but your kids will love looking like little monsters and having their teeth pink!
4. Challenge them to Brush for the Right Amount of Time
Do you ever send your children to brush their teeth and 3 seconds later they come back saying they’re done? Make brushing your teeth a contest with your children. Challenge them by saying whoever brushes their teeth longer wins. Brush your teeth for the proper amount of time (you can cheat with a toothbrush timer!), and then stop when the time is up. This is a sneaky way to get your kids brushing for the right amount of time!
Try out these products and tricks and you’ll find that your kids will be much more willing to brush their teeth! Good luck!
