  • Nope, we're really bad about it. They do once, right before bed, most nights. Sadly I was never forced to as a child, so I never got in the habit, and even though it means I have bad teeth now I still can't get myself to and I don't always remember to make them - I'm just glad they don't fight it when we do say "brush em!". Thankfully we have dental insurance for the kids, and even though oldest dd has had a few problems (cavities in the baby molars) 2nd dd hasn't had any - but her adult teeth are coming in weird and we can't afford an orthodontist.

  • I try to get my son too...(he's 9)...I remind him a zillion times in the morning and before he goes to bed. For the most part he does it...but I think sometimes he tries to shiest me and it works,lol.

  • our 7 year old's dentist told us to have him brush once a day with toothpaste and once a day without...I make sure he does at night with toothpaste but have a feeling his dad forgets to remind him in the morning pretty regularly.

  • I really feel guilty about not brushing my sons teeth twice a day. Its such a pain sometimes to brush his teeth that I just don't want to. I try to brush them once a day though.
