How I Got My Kids to Brush Their Teeth


I don’t know about you, but getting my kids to brush their teeth has ALWAYS been an intense struggle! It seems my kids’ sensory issues keeps them from wanting to brush their teeth.  Intense battles ensue! And I always seem to lose that battle – every – single – night!

If you follow our adventures on Facebook, last month, the dentist found a cavity on my son’s bicuspid and suggested an ugly silver cap!!! (Thanks for your advice against it)  I MUST find a way to encourage my kids to brush their teeth! Without a battle…

I was thrilled to try Oral-B’s new Disney Timer App just to see if it could motivate my kids to brush their teeth without a battle…

Also, the app prevents hackers, like my son, from cheating — my son tried to get more stickers by brushing his teeth twice in a row — the app didn’t let him!
