At what age should I start cleaning my son's gums? I've seen the little kits with the finger brush, but no one has mentioned it to me. Anyone have any idea?
You don'tnecessarily have to. Those kits are there to sooth the itching and burning that babies have while teething. If you want to you can brush your babies teeth at first "full" arrival, but it really isn't mandatory. Whatever you decide be careful not to clean/brush with fluoride until your kid is at least 3years of age.

Well there is no scientific evidence that those things dramatically help or change anything. The cleanser that is safe to swallow does not have fluoride in its ingredients, b/c its a poison and is not safe for consumption by infants. Heads up mama, you wont be missing out on anything.

Next question overall
What if your kids' school decided there would be no more homework?
