What does your child’s bedtime routine look like? Bath, pajamas, teeth brushing, book reading and then off to bed? For us everything runs pretty smoothly until the dreaded teeth brushing comes. Depending on my son’s mood it could go well or the complete opposite. If my son is especially tired, teeth brushing can quickly become the most dreaded chore of the evening. To combat any potential opposition I receive, I have come up with a “creative” distraction to make the experience more enjoyable namely singing loud annoying songs to him that he actually seems to enjoy. Every night I bust out in either a Disney tune, a song from a musical or anything else random that I remember from childhood. Oh, and lately I have been throwing in the ABC song since that’s his new favorite. If the mood strikes me I may bounce him up and down and make goofy faces as well.
This approach works most of the time. See he’s actually enjoying the teeth brushing. 🙂
To help survive the times when my son is not in the mood to have his teeth brushed, I can’t wait to try the new free Oral-B Disney Timer app that looks like so much fun! To get started all you need is a Crest or Oral-B Pro-Health Stages product and to download the free app. Then select a Disney or Marvel character for your child, scan his toothbrush using your smartphone and get started brushing.
A picture will appear as your child brushes and the longer he brushes the more prizes he will collect in his magic album. If Mickey Mouse or Jake from Jake and the Neverland Pirates can motivate my son to brush his teeth I am eager to give it a try.
