  • tell him to do it and when he says no make him walk in the bathroom and brush them make sure he goes in the bathroom and when he is finished tell him to come to you and tell you so you can inspect and make sure they are brushed... look at his teeeth and smell his breathe if he didnt brush them you will know.

  • i send my son to school with those finger tooth brushes and i make sure i count them and but i won't let him know just let him know you gave them to him and i would sit in the bathroom intil he brushes and if that doesn't work take him to the dentisit and let the dentist show him what teeth looks like but he is in the stage of yeah right mom you are pulling my leg..
