Use An App That Times The Toddler To Get Him To Brush Teeth
When a toddler watches an app to let him know how much time he has left to brush, he is more apt to jump on board the tooth brushing train.
If the toddler is willing to brush his teeth on his own, he should be allowed to brush for the entire timer. However, according to Meraki Lane, the timer method also helps to distract toddlers who are not quite ready to brush their teeth on their own and put up a fuss about having them brushed. The more the teeth are brushed, the easier it becomes over time.
Make Brushing Teeth Fun
Toddlers love to play games. Therefore, make teeth brushing a game as well!
Parents should use what toddlers are interested in to their advantage. From superheroes that are fighting the baddies in the mouth or a brave knight who has to scrub the villains away to save the princess, whatever keeps the toddler engaged in the tooth brushing process in a fun way should be used.
It may seem like the day will never come when a toddler wants to brush his teeth. But with consistency and routine, the little one will be a tooth brushing pro in no time.
