I can't get my toddler to brush his teeth. I used to do it for him but now, only a few months from his 2nd birthday, he fights and fusses and fits when I try to do it for him. He likes the tooth brush and asks for it, but then brushes for about 2 seconds and then uses it as a bat or drum stick or hair brush or back scratch-er.
Any tips? I don't want his little teeth rotting out of his head and I fear that fighting him will discourage him.
