My family and I recently took part in the Listerine and Reach Oral Care Challenge thanks to MomCentral. It couldn't have come at a better time.
My husband and I really try to take care of our children's teeth. Despite our best efforts our youngest has still managed to get cavities. It can be so disheartening as a parent. Then we received our package for the challenge and it has been a great reminder for us to not only watch our children's dental habits but to be a good example and practice our own healthy habits as well.
What perfect timing since Halloween is approaching. I am really dreading all of the candy that my boys will want and ask for daily. With our package we received several mouthwashes- some that are able to show you where you need to brush to remove the plaque, toothbrushes, floss and a cool sticker chart to encourage our boys to brush and floss regularly. So far they have been super excited about this challenge and have been very independent in wanting to take care of their teeth.
We have even decided to offer to buy our candy from our boys after Halloween and let them use the money to pick out a toy from the store. We'll see if it works!
