At what age did you let your kids brush their own teeth? Did you still continue to supervise them?
audree is 4 and i stil brush her teeth with her but i try to get her to do it
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.
They started brushing their own at 4 but I was in the bathrooom supervising
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.
