When I brush my 2 year olds teeth she will only let me brush the tip of her tongue, she gagged the few times I brushed further back and now wont even let me try...She enjoys brushing her teeth, just not her tongue.. Any advice?

I bought a light up vibrating toothbrush for my 2 yr old. Now we brush his teeth with fhe light off and he doesn't fight any of it

 She likes brushing her teeth, gives me no problem there. Its when it comes to brushing her tongue. She sticks it out for me with no fight but only gives me a very short time to brush it and when I try to get further back she drops to the floor and takes off running.

My son was the same way with his tongue, now he thinks it's funny and says it tickles instead
