Modeling the habit of brushing my teeth with my children
– We needed something to get in the habit of doing it without reminders.
– We decided at family meeting that we wouldn’t have anything sweet for a whole week if we missed brushing our teeth.
– I didn’t want to have to be the one reminding and catching them, so they started picking up on it and reminding each other. Then it calmed down for a bit.
– Now we do it all together and put a big clock or timer. It helps when they see us getting into it too.
