He is 6 going on 16. Anyways kid just got a new scooter and went to a water park. No special reason The 99 cent store sells 3 kid Care bears toothbrushes for of course 99 cent. They have other ones. Clifford sponge bob. All single. I like replacing my sons toothbrush about every 2 wks. So I thought he would deal with care bear. Oh no. He refuses to brush teeth. He says mom I'm not baby. I dunno he is timeout til he sucks it up

Um.....I actually don't know what to say...

Every 2 weeks seems excessive for replacing a toothbrush... let him use the old one...

For not brushing his teeth. Appropriate.

For not using a specific tooth brush. Silly.

These are the kinds of things we never think about dealing with before we have kids. Lol. I don't think you're being mean at all. It's such a silly thing for him to be upset about. I think you are right to stand you're ground.

go to the dollar store and buy him a big boy tooth brush, their only a dollar. I understand saving money but would you have made him use a girly one if it would've been on sale?

Lol; he's six. My six year old gets upset if I call him "baby". He's trying to be a grown up
