Training kids to dispense the right amount of toothpaste? Talk amongst yourselves.
My kids are of the age where they don't need constant supervision while brushing their teeth, but they struggle with using the right amount of toothpaste and keeping the toothpaste tube clean!
I'm tired of toothpaste duty and cleaning up globs in the sink. Any ideas?
In my house this was a manual dexterity issue more than it was not knowing the "right" amount. Squeezing a tube of toothpaste takes some decent motor control.
We had the best luck during those years with stand-up tubes of toothpaste with pump-like dispensers that only let out a small amount of toothpaste.
Another option: liquid gel toothpaste in flip-top bottles that comes out more easily.
What say you, Parenthackers? I bet someone else has a better answer than I do.
