Parenting is a very tough job in this world, we need to take charge of everything especially in children, I have difficulties in relying to my children about brushing their teeth during thier childhood, as parents how did you handle this situtation, can you tell some of your experiences how did you encourage your chilren in brushing their teeth after each meals? Its of course very important to have a clean and white teeth during earlier age until they become adolescents and adults, share your experiences please so that everyone can apply it on thier children. thank you very much and happy mylotting,

My husband and I tried to make it fun. Using fun toothbrushes that light up and using toothpaste with characters on it. We would brush our teeth with our kids. We've explained cavaties and things like that. I don't think he totally understood, but he does brush his teeth.
