When you have 9 children with an age range of 14 years for the oldest and 2 as the youngest, the more they can do things on their own (self-sufficient) the better it is for mom and dad and, ultimately, for them. One goal we have as parents is for our kids to learn to stand strong on their own, which means we need to teach them life-skills now, not later.
One of those life-skills is learning how to brush their own teeth.
But, it’s actually not that easy. Learning to brush teeth is easy on its own, but when toothbrushes look the same, another unintended problem we have is this:
Whose toothbrush is it?
