At what age can a child be trusted to brush their teeth on their own? There is no exact answer, it all depends on the perfection of the child’s motor skills. But if he already confidently writes his name by hand, then it’s time!
Just do not think that once you have demonstrated your skill, you can forget about this “care” and trust him.
Be sure to control the quality of cleaning until you are sure that every time not a single tooth is left without attention
And of course, it is very important to explain why we are doing this, so that there is an understanding of the necessity and regularity of this process
This is what we did in one of our classes. Now each of our children understands the importance of brushing their teeth, knows how to properly hold the brush and what kind of paste to use!
Do your kids already brush their teeth on their own??
