It is a HUGE struggle getting my 3 year old son to brush his teeth in the morning and at night. He would cry, refuse to let us carry him, and just simply refuse to brush his teeth. I have tried scare tactics, scolding him and even bribing but it's all not working. HELP!

Perhaps you could take his favourite stuffed toy and show him that his stuffed toy needs to brush its teeth twice a day as well. Children love role playing. Also, try out interactive cloth books such as this one by Mother Goose which comes with a fabric toothbrush and toothpaste where he can play with the toothbrush and toothpaste and brush the teeth of the characters in the book.
