The Tooth Fairy Can Deliver More Than Money
Every parent wants their child to experience cavity free dental exams. It is no fun taking your child to a dentist appointment when a cavity needs to be filled. By getting your child in the habit of properly brushing and caring for their teeth early then you will experience more dental exams ending with “No cavities.” So for the sake of you and your child get your child in the habit of brushing every day at least twice a day.
I have tried many different methods to keep my children interested in brushing. I have tried the musical toothpaste lid, buying overpriced toothbrushes because they were imprinted with the newest superhero and I even bought the toothbrushes that twirl and spin hoping to keep my children interested. Well, they all worked for a while, at least until the novelty wore off. I needed another way to help keep my kids motivated and keep up with their brushing.
Tooth brush charts are a great way to keep your child interested in brushing. Fun stickers and rewards are always a great parenting tool. Another tool that is sometimes overlooked by parents is the Tooth Fairy. Every kid is excited to get their first visit from the Tooth Fairy. This is a great reason to take the opportunity to let the Tooth fairy help promote good brushing as well. This magical little note reminding your child to keep brushing because she is excited to collect nice shiny teeth will give your child something to work on. If your child starts to lose interest in brushing simply send a nice little note reminding them that the Tooth Fairy is counting on their shiny teeth.
Enjoy the magical time when your children believe in the Tooth Fairy. Enjoy the twinkle in their eye and the smile across their face. Take advantage of this awesome opportunity to help your child understand the importance of good dental care.…
