 At what age did you let your kids brush their own teeth?  Did you still continue to supervise them?

maybe it was when they turned 5? ds is 8 and dd is 6. I still check their when they are done, they tend to miss spots.

DS was 5-ish when he started doing it on his own. DD is 4, almost 5, and I still help her.

I always let my girls "help" me brush their teeth and then whenever they start grabbing the brush and becoming more independent I let them brush and then I go and "make sure they got everything". My 3 year old is pretty good about brushing now and I let her brush her teeth but, yes, I still supervise.

By 3 my daughter was mostly doing it herself. I watch her to make sure she does a good job though and every once in a while I'll brush them too. (shes 4 now)
