How I made my son finally enjoy brushing his teeth

"Meine Tipps hören sich zwar simpel an, waren für mich jedoch extrem hilfreich"

# 1 Talk about it and clarify why the child doesn’t want to brush their teeth at all. It often happened with us that his teeth were coming out, it hurt, and therefore he just didn’t want to.


# 2 Never drag the child to stop playing and decide it’s time to brush their teeth right now. Everyone would really defend themselves.

# 3 Practice Spitting: My little one loves toothpaste and spitting out lots of water from his specially selected toothbrush cup into the bathtub. Well, at least sometimes.

# 4 Explain that if you don’t clean your teeth afterward, unfortunately you can’t taste the cake anymore. It sounds unpleasant, but it often works for us. Since my daughter doesn’t consume sugar often anyway, she certainly doesn’t want to do without sweets between meals.

# 5 Tell her many, many times why brushing is important and admit that we parents care about dental health. Respect is also very important here. I always say “please” and “thank you” and she already values ​​it very much. My daughter sometimes had her teeth brushed afterward. I don’t care if he did it because he really got it or because he just wanted him to stop chatting.
