Do you brush and floss your teeth? Do your children like brushing and flossing>.

I love brushing and flossing, having a clean mouth makes my day. My children love brushing and just started flossing. I am glad we started the habit young ( we were brushing gums after feedings when they were infants) Do your kiddo's like it or is it more of a habit to get them to do it and you have to check there toothbrush to make sure they did/

  • I have teens, but I taught them to brush daily and floss a long time ago. I dont know if they LIKE it,,but they do it. Im obsessed with clean teeth and keep a tooth pick with me all day, thats just me. We went to the movies, about a month ago to see Eclipse and had popcorn and I produced the magical in plastic wrap toothpicks,,,,lol

  • I brush every day but have a hard time remembering to floss. My 5 year old loves brushing and flossing and never forgets! She even brushes her teeth 4-5 times a day sometimes :-)

  • I HATE to brush & floss... And what is even worse is mouth wash. But twice a day, it's just a part of the day... Now, the kids, I actually have to wrestle the brush off of because they will literally stand in there for a half hour brushing away - which gets really boring for mom and dad since they can't be left alone in the bathroom without risking an overflowed potty yet...

  • I check my son's teeth and lately he does a really crappy job brushing. I was on his case last night because he is going to need braces and I told him he HAS to take better care of his teeth especially if we will be spending over 5 grand to make them look nice. ugh!!
