It is a fight every day to brush her teeth.. She wants to do it all herself, Needless to say, that is fine, but i need to get in there and really brush. I have tried new toothbrushes even ones that play music as well as us singing old mcdonald, and brushing my teeth along side her. We get it done but it is a big fight. Any other suggestions.

I just wanted to say just relax, i have 4 children with no cavities ever, my oldest is 15, My youngest is 2 and she likes to watch mommy brush a nd brush like you said along side me. They don't need any help as you know... she will get better at it I promise, her teeth will be healthy, let her do it, just be consistent with that. There is just so much to be anxious about, this is a precious time.
