I am having a struggle brushing my 4 year olds teeth. For a few years he was trying to imitate me with his little toothbrush. He mostly liked the toothpaste, but he was making the arm motions like he was brushing them. Now I pretty much have to hold him down and shove the toothbrush in and do a quick brush. I tried different types of toothbrushes, he was fascinated by my electric one, so I got him one and he still runs away. How have you ladies dealt with this? I just feel bad having to force him to let me do this. At the dentist it's hard too, we barely get his mouth open and the dentist goes fast, as well as the cleaning. Once you let him go though, it's like nothing ever happened.
