Do You Need a Little Help?

Is getting your children ready for bed a continual battle?  Do they try to negotiate their way out of brushing their teeth?  Don't worry, you are not alone!

While this scene plays out in American homes every night, the trade off for giving in to their pleading will actually end up costing you, and them...a lot!

Children know how to "push the right buttons" when you are tired at the end of the day.  You are not the only parent that gives in.  Many parents have relented due the incessant arguing at bedtime over teeth brushing.

We have found that children love incentives when it comes to caring for their teeth.  There is a great website full of fun suggestions, facts, ideas and educational material that may help you win this nighttime battle.  This website also has instructional videos that you can watch with your children.  Here is a link to the website, take a look, it might give you some helpful ideas.

In the top right corner of our blog we also have a fun printable chart you can customize for your children or grandchildren.  They love to see the boxes fill in.  They can even bring in their completed charts to their next exam for an extra prize our of our prize box.  Now what child wouldn't love that idea?

Although it may be a struggle to get your children to develop the habit of good oral health care, you will always win in the end.  A healthy mouth means a healthy child.  We believe in you and know that you can set a great example for your children in taking charge of their oral health care.
