It’s been three weeks since my family and I started the LISTERINE® and REACH® Healthy Habits for a Lifetime Oral Care Challenge. We were pretty clueless when we first got started. You can check out some of my misconceptions about oral health care.
Basically, in this challenge, every member of my family brushed, flossed, and rinsed at least twice a day. My kids now love rinsing, which they call “doing swishies.”
The biggest thing that I learned by doing this challenge is that it only takes a few minutes to take care of myself. I was good at making my kids brush their teeth before(though not flossing or rinsing) but when it came to me, I was too busy rushing around to take a few minutes to take care of my teeth.
And that’s just ridiculous. It really is only a few minutes out of my day. And now I brush, floss, and rinse right alongside my kids: best way to get your kids into a good habit is to model it! And after these three weeks, it’s a habit for us. So, even if I’m exhausted after getting home from soccer and try to rush the bedtime routine, my boys will say “Mo-om, we can’t go to bed yet, we didn’t do swishies!”
