5 ways to get your kids to brush
As a parent, there are many things that you need to help your children learn as they grow. During their early years, brushing is high on that list. To help your kids keep their smile for a lifetime, it’s important to first make sure that they know the proper technique, and then ensure that they continue to use while brushing regularly. But sometimes that’s easier said than done.
If you have a hard time getting your kid to brush, try one of these methods to make the process more fun.
1) Brush together.
Have you noticed how quick kids are to copy things that they see you or other adults too? Brushing is no exception. If you want your child to have good oral hygiene, you need to lead by example. In the morning and before bed, get out your own toothbrush and brush together. Little ones will enjoy being a “big kid” and you’ll have the opportunity to make sure that they’re brushing correctly. Most kids don’t really get the hang of it until around the age of 8, so you’ll probably need to do some touching up when they’re younger.
