Gift Ideas For Kids & Teens With Disabilities

The holidays are such a magical time of year! Most people enjoy spending time with families, hearing the Christmas music playing in the stores and the general happiness and positive energy people are tossing around like confetti. For some parents the holidays can be a bit more of a challenge and not because of our grinch attitudes or dislike of the season. The holidays are different for some parents because the holidays are different for our kids. As a mother of three beautiful kids, a girl and two boys (both boys have disabilities) I know how unusual it can be to help your kids enjoy the season as much as others. Our oldest boy has ADHD and struggles to complete tasks or enjoy quiet, calm activities like others his age. Our youngest has Asperger’s which makes it a struggle for him to enjoy the wide range of emotions so many kids express this time of year. The holidays are not always easy for them simply because they experience things differently and don’t enjoy the same activities. Th

5 Ways To Promote Dental Care In Children


Children are born with natural smiles, but their teeth can be damaged if they do not receive proper dental care. The mouth is very fragile and requires special attention to maintain healthy teeth. If you have children or work with children, here are some fun ways to promote dental care:

Make it fun

Incentives help motivate your children to brush their teeth. You can make it a game, competition, or family activity. You can also make it a regular activity (e.g., brushing teeth after breakfast and dinner. This will help dental care become part of their life!

Connect it to something else they enjoy

There are many ways you can connect dental care to something your child enjoys. For example, if your child loves horses, make an appointment with the dentist during their birthday party and have them give their horse a dental checkup. If they love video games, have a dentist-themed video game day at your house where they clean teeth while playing or get rewarded for good oral hygiene by competing against each other in a fun game of Mario Kart. If they enjoy art or writing, ask them to create a comic strip about what goes on in the dentist's office before or after an appointment. The possibilities are endless. 

Make it a habit

The most important thing you can do to promote good dental hygiene in your child is to make brushing and flossing part of their daily routine. This is especially true if they still learn to brush their teeth. Once they learn how to brush and floss properly, it's essential that they continue these habits throughout life to keep their teeth healthy, strong, and cavity-free!

Teach them

Your children's oral health is a vital part of their overall health and well-being. From the time they're born, you can teach them to care for their teeth by using creative methods to help them remember their habits throughout their lives.

It's essential that you start teaching your children the importance of dental care early on. They will be more likely to remember these lessons and stick with good dental hygiene habits as they grow older if they learn about them early.

Creatively teaching your children about oral care can help promote dental care because it allows them to associate good dental hygiene with something fun and enjoyable. This makes it easier for them to remember what they've learned and continue these practices as they age.

 

Take them to a fun dentist.

One of the best ways to give kids a positive impression of going to the dentist is by taking them to a fun dentist. You can find a good fit for your child by asking friends and family members, or you can even consult their favorite TV show. For example, if they enjoy watching Dora or Doc McStuffins, they'll likely have an affinity for pediatricians who look like those characters!

The first step in finding a great dentist is looking at what ones like this orthodontics Enfield has to offer. Ask your child if they want to go somewhere new and what kind of dentist they would like to go to? Is there anyone on YouTube that could help? You could watch some videos together before your appointment to let your child get familiar with what they're getting into!

Conclusion

Dental care is one of the most important things for kids. It will help them stay healthy, enjoy their lives, and maintain a good smile.
