Oral health is a big deal around here. While my husband suffers from severe dental issues and I have virtually none, my girls (especially my oldest) understand the extremes of caring vs not caring for your teeth. Getting my girls to brush their teeth is by no means like pulling teeth (pun intended) but brushing properly is a different story. My youngest insists on brushing her own teeth, often just sucking off the toothpaste and chewing on her toothbrush. My oldest, although she brushes much better, she doesn’t always brush thoroughly. That is, until she understood HOW to.
