Any advice for teaching children how to brush their teeth and develop good habits?

Mamas - my toddler is growing up and I want her to develop good habits! How do I teach her?

Do it with them!! Whatever it is - brushing teeth, playing games,, cleaning up - join in on the fun. Remember, we learn by example :) 0 Likes

Turn everything into a game. Classic kid advice, but it really works for them. Celebrate wins, acknowledge ‘losses’ and just have fun with it. When you think about it, we probably develop habits better this way as adults, too! 0 Likes

My son loves to hold my electric toothbrush and his light up toothbrush. He doesn’t like having his teeth brushed but he likes to hold the brushes before and after. And we do our brushing together 0 Likes
