Are you having trouble getting your little ones to brush their teeth? If so, you aren’t the only one. Many parents struggle with the task of getting their children to brush not once, but twice a day.

Below are a few tips for parents to keep in mind when trying to encourage children to brush!

Tip #1
Place a timer in your bathroom and set it for two minutes. Try and position it as a game to your children that whoever brushes until the buzzer is the winner!

Tip #2
Select a cool toothbrush and toothpaste that will get your kids excited about using them! At your local drug or grocery store, you should be able to find a large selection of kid-friendly brushes and toothpastes that any child would be sure to love!

Tip #3
Brushing your teeth at the same time as your little ones is the perfect way to ensure they are getting the job done and doing it correctly. By making daily brushing a family event, it’s a good way to make brushing a routine chore and not a choice!
