I am a co-parent to my girlfriend's 7(soon to be 8 in Nov.)yr old daughter. Recently we have been having problems getting her to do the things she has been doing just fine for 2 yrs. She has recently started not brushing her teeth in the morning, she claims "she does not feel like it, or doesnt want to". After repeated warnings she kept not brushing, so we grounded her(took away t.v., comp., gameboy)but that did not make difference. We recently started a new punishment for not brushing which was telling her that if she would not brush her teeth, she would not get any sweets//this did not work surprisingly, so we bought her a battery powered toothbrush, this seemed to motivate her for 2 days, but now has gone back to not brushing, what else can we do? we have a reward chart but I dont feel I should put on there what she has been doing for 2 yrs?? help!Answer Question
