Would you pay your kids to brush their teeth?

I have a friend who has set up a household roster with her kids that works very well. The children do all of their jobs without much hassle and they get paid to do them. There is one that I find rather amusing and that is that she pays her kids to brush their teeth. Would you pay them to brush their teeth? Personally there is no way that I would as my kids have to do this on a daily routine without having to be paid or told. What are your opinions on this?

I personally couldn't imaging paying my children to brush their teeth - this is something that they have been taught is necessary to do at least 2 times a day for years now and we have never had a problem. If they have ever fussed about it - we just remind them how important it really is to take care of yourself - and having the ability to keep all your teeth is so important!!!

I just bought really cool battery operated toothbrushs for my boys to encourage them, the bonus is that I can hear who istrying and they get a better brushing even when I do it for them. If I thought that paying was the only way to make sure teeth were cleaned, I would consider it, but I would need to have proof it had actually happened, I would check-up.
