Hi Shanu, you can brush along with your kid, everyday by singing "this is the way I brush my teeth" rhymes and he/she will slowly develop interest towards brushing. It will take at least 3 years for the kids to brush on their own.

hi Shanu Khanna! some children dread brushing time as not just brushing itself scares them but also because it is unnecessary for them as they don't realize it's importance at this age . u could try funny strategies to make him brush. say for Instance ask him " how does lion roar? "huaaaaa" let him make the roaring sound. praise him. who is Mommy's lion. let him say "me". my lions' teeth are shiny and have a sparkling shine. how will that happen ask him? "by brushing his teeth" let him say that. "lets see who's the winner?" have a brush for yourself. he will enjoy imitating u and in the end u could gently help him. he will enjoy brushing time if made interesting everytime. hope this helps.

Hi Shanu, make a habit of brushing early in the morning and at bedtime. Give him flavoured toothpaste and designed brush. Show him rhymes on brushing or you show him how to brush. Dont give anything to eat untill and unless he brushes. Scare him that if he will not brush insects will bite him.
