So my teenage son and I just had an argument this morning, he says that my rule about brushing teeth at the kitchen sink ( I do not allow it) is ridiculous.  Not wanting to be stubborn or stuck in my ways, I must ask.  Should brushing teeth at the kitchen sink be allowed?

I don't see what the big deal it. It's a sink.  You spit, you rinse.  It's not like he's peeing in it!

Its no different to dirty dishes. Just long as the sink is washed down.

Hey, kid is brushing his teeth! There 's a win right there! Also, much more gross things go into a kitchen sink than spit .

Sorry , I think this a rule just to have a rule. However, I have one bathroom and it seems it is always " occupied " for night time brushings. We have extra toothbrushes tucked away very sanitary for just that reason.

If the teeth are getting brushed , I could care less where it happens.

why not? it has running water, it's easily cleaned.  dirty dishes sit in the sink.

 that is gross! They probably aren't putting the toilet seat down before flushing
