Balancing good oral health with a busy schedule and a forgetful mind
The first step was to make myself actually remember to floss, brush and rinse every night and day. Not just do one of the three, but all three every time. For me, that means leaving the Listerine products out in the open where I see them. Some people like to stash their oral health care products in a cabinet. I have so much stuff in my cabinets, I’ll never remember to look there! No one but me uses my bathroom, so honestly, I don’t really care if it’s company-ready all the time.
For Jacob, I created a schedule that doesn’t interrupt his play time. I let him stay up 5 minutes later at night and get up 5 minutes earlier in the morning. That’s really all it takes! Ten minutes off his sleep schedule really doesn’t make a huge impact, as he gets a good 9 hours of sleep every night anyway. He didn’t feel like I was taking away his fun time and I got what I wanted- a kid who doesn’t fight with me about brushing, flossing and rinsing. Sometimes you have to know when to compromise as a parent to reduce struggles. So how did we do? Overall, I think we did pretty good with the Listerine 21-Day Oral Health Challenge.
