my daughter is six years old this year.but he hasn't formed the good habit of brushing teeth.every time i ask her to brush her teeth,she always appears to be very unhappy and finishes brushing in a hurry before i keep a watch over her.once when i walk near her i found she finished it without spare any toothpaste on her brush.i am worried about this thing.i appeal for good advice.

I learned it from my cousin about this thing and apply it to my kids, print-out pictures from internet for bad teeth images and show them the consequences that would be due to laziness in brushing teeth. It works to my kids, previously. They really be touched on looking that images and started brushing their teeth frequently.

hi, i think there is nothing to worry about, children are all like that. maybe you can tell her the benefit of brushing teeth, or give her some praise when she finishs it. also, you can let her choose the type of toothpaste she like. even if she really hating brushing teeth, just let she be in that way. you know, she is only 6 years old. when she grow up, she will do it self-consciously.
