Do your kids give you a hard time when you/your husband brush their teeth?

I would agree with Elfrieda, sing a little song as you brush it helps takes their mind off it. Or you could try giving him your toothbrush and letting him brush ur teeth at the same time. My daughters 20mths and just loves getting her teeth brushed now.

Yes, when we started brushing my son's teeth he would cry (that just made it easier to get to them, haha!) but now that he's 18 months he's used to it. He lies down with his head in my lap and I sing a song while I brush his teeth. He's not really patient, but I brush for at least two verses of "She'll be coming 'round the mountain". He still cries sometimes when I do it, but somehow when his dad does it it's fun.
