I have a son nearly six years old. From he was a baby ,I brush his teeth every morning and evening. He brushes his teeth himself from 3 years old. I found he never brushed teeth every morning, but every evening before he went to bed ,he do brush. He said evening brush is just ok. Every morning, we hurry to sent him to kindergarten, so i never request him to brush teeth. Is right for me never request him? Does your child brush teeth every morning and night?

My daughters brush their teeth every morning & night. They love to do it. If they dont scrub them good, i do it for them, but they never get away with not brushing them.

We have 4 children and they all brush their teeth after breakfast every morning...we don't even have to tell them. But, they are not so good at doing it at bedtime. If we remind them to, they do it but if we don't say anything then it doesn't get done.

All of our children brush their teeth in the Morning after Breakfast and in the evening just before they go to bed. It is something that we have encouraged since they were little, and they have just got into the habit of it now so do it without prompting. I think it is important that they clean their teeth at both times and to get them into the habit of it from an early age, and it will hopefully pay dividends later when they get older with less visits to the dentist.

Our daughter is 11.She brushes her teeth every morning before school and every ight before bedtime. We also have her using a flouride rinse every night after brushing. We do still need to remind her to brush,especially on the weekends. It must be working because so far o cavities.

I think you'd better to let your son brush his teeth both in morning and night. It is good for his teeth and health. You should let him form this good habit. we parents should responsible for our child ,is it right? Happy mylotting.
