There are so many battles that a parent has to face. The classic I want to dress myself battle, the I refused to brush my hair battle or my personal favorite, I won’t eat anything but noodles battle. How is it that these tiny little people are so strong willed already!?! One thing that doesn’t have to be a battle is brushing their teeth. Hello products has invited me to share with you our Brush Time Confessions. I know that lots of parents buy fancy spinning tooth brushes with cartoon characters on them or toothpastes with
tasty sugary flavors. Anything to get their kids interested and active in brushing their teeth.
From an early age J loved tooth brushes. We would find them all over the house and often times he’d have one in each hand. I never thought that getting him to brush as he got older would be an issue. Well, that strong willed personality kicked in and we had a battle on our hands.
We decided that we didn’t want toothpastes that were overall bad for him, we wanted to create a route that he would enjoy and have fun with. This left me with a little problem, most kids don’t like minty toothpaste, so whats a parent to do? Hello products has a full line of kid toothpastes that are delicious and naturally friendly, and the Natural Watermelon flavor is fluoride free (safe to swallow). I’ll admit that sometimes I even brush my teeth with the watermelon flavor.
So we create a routine, every evening after bath time the entire family gathers in our our master bathroom for brush time. JDub gets to climb up on the counter and brush with his toothpaste. Sometimes I have to bust out the smartphone and play the Elmo tooth brushing song and act silly, but it works.
What are your Brush Time Confessions?
