Answer: A few suggestions: 1. Make brushing teeth just part of the routine. You may want to try it BEFORE the bath so she is not so tired. Or even during the bath. 2. Consider skipping toothpaste. Most dentists say that's fine at this age, and since most kids don't like toothpaste, you might experiment to see if that makes her more open to brushing. 3. "Play" toothbrushing all day long to help get her used to the idea and work out her feelings about it. For instance: let her brush the stuffed animals' or dolls' "teeth."Brush all over her body -- her arm, her ear. "Is this where I should brush?"Let her brush your teeth to reverse the power dynamic and help her work out her feelings about it with a lot of giggling (which releases the same pent-up emotions as crying.) 4. Use sound to start good habits.Encourage her to say "Teeee" (for the front teeth) and "Ahhhh" (for the back teeth) and roar like an animal so her mouth is open wide while brushing. This also makes the whole process more of an exciting game. 5. Sing! "This is the way we brush our teeth, after we eat our dinner" 6. Play "copycat". Since most kids this age enjoy learning by copying us but want to "do it themselves," brush together looking into the mirror. Have her copy you in the mirror as you brush. Make it a fun game.
