Aquafresh Advanced Futures contest with a Giveaway **Closed**

Alongside with Mom Central, we delighted to announce the Aquafresh Advanced Futures contest; you simply share a wish for your child and you could win $10,000 towards an RESP! Check it out here!!

How amazing is that!!!!

I don't know about you but I have some really high hopes for my kids! Kristina and I were just talking the other day about some of the kids at school making fun of her for ordering a math book through the school. So I was telling her that the kids who do well in school, try really hard and do their best go places. They become doctors, lawyers and business owners. Kids that don't care about school and don't try at all don't become much of anything. She was happy with that and said that those kids would learn when she got so good at math that she skipped a grade and then they would be begging her to tutor them lol. She's awesome!

As much as I hope that Kristina goes really far in life I mostly hope that's shes happy. I am a big believer that it doesn't matter how much money you make to be considered successful! You can be just as successful being a stay at home mom making no money! I work retail for not a lot of money but it gives us enough extra money so that I can stay at home during the day with the kids!

What do you hope for kids future?

Share your wish www.aquafresh.ca/contest for a chance to WIN a $10,000 RESP, courtesy of new Aquafresh Advanced! The contest is going until November 20th so you have lots of time to write up your wish for your child!!

How do you get your kids to brush their teeth?

- Make it a habit. Children should get into a healthy routine of brushing after breakfast and before bed. They should brush for at least two minutes so that the fluoride has time to work.

- Limit the amount of toothpaste. Children under 6 years of age don’t need more than a pea-sized amount of fluoride toothpaste to clean effectively. This will also help that tube last a little longer!

-Be supportive. Up until first grade or later, kids will need supervision and coaching to brush properly. Make brushing more fun by playing or singing a favorite song, setting a timer to countdown two minutes, or offering to read a favorite story as a reward.

We also have a great giveaway for you from Aquafresh!! You can win a Philips Sonicare for Kids Toothbrush valued at $70(MSRP) and a sample of Aquafresh Advanced toothpaste! Keep in mind that you can enter on as many blogs as you would like, try googling it, but you can only win once :)

My son had a barney toothpaste when he was younger that played music,so he would have to keep brushing his teeth untill the music stopped! ;)
Make it a habit for them to brush their teeth after every meal & it will become routine & they wont mind it!

I was lucky with my daughter. All I had to do was buy a character toothbrush, and a novelty type toothpaste and she brushed her teeth all the time.

When my kids were young I used to read them a chapter out of a book while they brushed. If they quit brushing I quit reading. They always wanted to hear the story so they brushed away.

I always let them brush their teeth first and then I take over. We've made it a fun ritual in our house so they never complain. I also let my son choose which toothpaste he wants.

the biggest thing is just lots of reminders. Then making sure everyone has a toothpaste that they like to use.

For my son I used to pretend that I could see Thomas the Tank Engine in his mouth and he liked my sons teeth to be clean. So we'd "clean thomas"
I also usually let my kids brush their teeth first and then I praise them but then I do it.

We brush our teeth together. My son is more likely to brush if he sees mom & dad brushing as well. tylerpants(at)gmail.com
