Last night, my kids ASKED ME if they can brush their teeth. WHAT? I am partnering with Firefly® and One2One Network to share my own opinion and show you all how to get your kids to brush their teeth, without a fight!
At ages 8 and 4, they both tend to cringe at doing anything that doesn’t involve food, games, or wildness. Anytime I would say, “C’mon, get in the shower, it’s almost bed time” and “Don’t forget to brush your teeth before bed!“, it incited the worst moans, groans and eye rolls: How DARE I ask them to do things that are good for their health?
I’ve learned that forcing never works, especially with my stubborn 4 year old. The key here is to make it fun and exciting, to make them WANT to participate and like it. Firefly® toothbrushes did just the trick! Check out these Star Wars® light saber toothbrushes, how cool are these?
Firefly® toothbrushes light up and time the child brushing their teeth for 60 seconds. When the light goes out, they know they’re finished brushing! There are tons of different Firefly® toothbrush designs available, but these red Darth Vader and blue Obiwan light sabers are my kids’ absolute favorites! You can hear their actual voices and sounds from the Star Wars® franchise, keeping them entertained while they do something that is an important daily habit to maintain.
This is the best possible way that I can encourage my kids to brush their teeth, without a fuss and fight! Making it fun and exciting worked for us, I would highly recommend these to any parent who has trouble brushing their young child’s teeth, or convincing them to. It is so important to instill healthy oral care habits at a young age, and I think Firefly® does the trick.
