Why is it so hard to brush our children’s teeth?
Understanding what is happening for our child when it’s time for us to brush his teeth: a brief explanation of the latest research on children’s psychology, neurophysiology and how emotions and powerlessness works in the brain and body.
How can we help them?
Practical solutions that are respectful of your child’s legitimate needs and will increase the bound between you and your child.
Quick, simple and fun games to play during the day to help your child with toothbrushing but also with cooperation in general.
Quick, simple and fun games to play in the moment, to make toothbrushing fun and attractive for your child and avoid struggles.
Being honest and setting limits
My approach is based on honesty and mutual respect. When making toothbrushing fun, our intention should not be to manipulate or “trick” our children.
We’ll also talk about the balance between playing and setting limits while brushing teeth.
Real life examples
Videos of how I’m using those games with my daughter, non-edited real-life moments.
When it doesn’t work
What we can do when nothing seems to work… because let’s be honest, it does happen sometimes.
Healing from medical interventions
Having his teeth brushed could remind your child of a past traumatic medical intervention. That would explain why he becomes very agitated and tends to “fight or flight” when you approach him. In this chapter you’ll find some guidance on how to help your child.
This program is made for you if:
your child is aged between 1.5 and 9 years old
you wish to understand what is underneath your child’s behaviour
you’re looking for a respectful and connecting approach (NO punishments, rewards, bribes or threats in here!)
you’re willing to try out new things and get a little playful
you’re craving some ease and fun with your kids
you’re busy (videos are 5-10min long and easy to follow)
