My kids are learning to brush their teeth after every meal...and I am so proud of them. I do have to remind them a lot though. Do you ever wonder why some kids' parents don't make their kids brush their teeth? I know of parents that haven't forced the issue with their kids and their oldest has already got cavities and his top front teeth have started rotting....I mean, doesn't this just make you wonder why some parents have that "Oh well, there only the baby teeth, the permanent ones will come in soon anyway" attitude? It just makes me cringe! This particular little boy is only 3 1/2!!! And his teeth are already ROTTING! They are completely black....(he recently went to the dentist on his grandma's prompting of his mother, and the dentist had to remove the whole top front row of his teeth! and the dentist told the mom to make him brush his teeth and stay away from sugar, acidic foods, and sodas) What are your thoughts on this????
