I have a confession to make. One of my boys had a cavity. It was so saddening for me. We brush teeth every night. We brush teeth every morning, but I have to admit, we haven’t been as diligent about flossing teeth. So the cavity was between his teeth. My eldest was a trooper. He did not cry when they gave him a shot and he was cheerful the entire procedure. I wanted to cry. It just irks me. So I decided to create a reminder so all of us can remember to floss at night. What is it? Well, it’s a “Get Ready for Bed Reward Chart”.
This chart is so simple to use, you can laminate it and hang it in the bathroom and use a write-on-wipe-off marker to mark on it every day of the week and clear it at the end of the week to start over again. Or, you can opt to use the “stickers” I’ve included and print a new chart each week. When my kids fill up a chart like this, their reward might be an extra apple after lunch or a trip to the dollar store.
