One mom described how her 4-year-old son insisted on brushing his own teeth, however, he did not do a particularly thorough job. She came up with an idea of how she might be able to encourage him to brush better.
She asked him if there was anyone at school he really liked. He replied that he really liked Madison because “She’s so beautiful!” Mom then told her son that she thought Madison probably really like white teeth. He really scrubbed his teeth after hearing that!
Finding the right motivator can make a big difference.
