Hi Ladies, My son will soon turn three now..He never wants to brush his teeth...i tried so many ideas but he will just run away whenever i want to bathe him and brush his teeth...its tough to handle him at that time resulting in spanking him and shouting at him. This has become a daily routine. I tried to speak softly, even brushing my own teeth, teaching him the importance of brushing and even showing him the TV ads...but no use. He just throws tantrum while i try to brush his teeth, throws away the brush. Please ladies suggest some ideas to make him brush his teeth. I dont want to make him cry anymore. When i hear other mothers telling how their kids do such activities smoothly i feel jealous..why not my kid. He even hates bathing and doing poo in toilet (starts running here and there). Ladies i am a working mom, so always short of time. I often feel that i am not giving enough time to teach him these things.
