Self Care tip:
Let your child watch you brush and floss your teeth. Narrate each step as you're doing it and add some silly songs, gestures, counting or whatever your child will recognize and engage with.
When using imaginative play, pretend to brush a toy's teeth and talk about what you're doing and why. Give praise to the toy for opening wide and for having clean teeth and for being patient while you brush it's teeth. Making flossing a normal part of the tooth brushing routine vs. an occasional step and this will help when your child independently takes over this role.
