Dental Tips To Get Your Kids Excited About Teeth Brushing
Give your child a cool prize for brushing their teeth.
What kid wouldn't be excited to brush their teeth each day if they knew they were going to get a prize each time? You can try prizes like:
- Quarters for their piggy bank
- Toy cars
...etc. The point here is that you can give them something small and cost-effective and it doesn't have to be sweets (which could take away from the healthy teeth message you are trying to communicate).
Buy a cool toothbrush for your child.
There are so many kids' toothbrush options out there now. They have toothbrushes that light up, that are fun bright colors, that could have your kids' favorite superheroes on them and more! So go to your nearest store and let your kid pick their favorite toothbrush. This act alone could do wonders!
Buy fun flavored toothpaste for your kid.
Just think of all of the fun flavors of toothpaste out there. Your kid doesn't have to have the generic toothpaste in order to keep their teeth nice and clean. Make teeth brushing fun and let them pick their favorite flavor!
Be the toothbrusher that your kids look up to.
You can do this by setting an AWESOME example for your kids and brushing your own teeth regularly. Your kids may look up to you more than realize and this very thing could be what excites them about teeth brushing.
Cheer for your kids when they brush their teeth.
What kid doesn't want to be cheered for? Even if it's for something as simple as brushing your teeth, you could be making teeth brushing ten times more fun for you kid by simply cheering for them as they do it. Think about it, if you were a kid, wouldn't you get a kick out of watching your parents cheer every time you brushed your teeth?
