Healthy teeth start with healthy habits, and it’s never too early to equip tots with the tools they’ll need. Disney provides an array of items to bring fun to the forefront while brushing up on dental care. With four kids in the house teeth brushing takes up a lot of time. I'm always saying, "Go brush your teeth." or "Have you brushed your teeth?" We all usually end up in the bathroom waiting for the water cup and our turn to spit in the sink. Here are some awesome tips on getting your kids to have better brushing habits:
|Let your children choose a fun |
toothbrush and toothpaste.
• Let your kids pick out a tooth brush or paste with their favorite character to keep things fun
• Sing a silly song while kids brush to make the activity exciting and help make sure they brush teeth thoroughly
• Help your kids understand the importance of good oral care by showing empathy when they protest the daily activity
