difficult child 1 had a cleaning at the dentist's today. He has FOUR new cavities. That's on top of the SIX he had at the end of last summer. And today, because the hygienist called in sick today, the dentist himself cleaned my boy's teeth. He said that plain and simple, difficult child 1's issues are due to NOT brushing and NOT flossing. Short of wrestling this kid to the ground and having his dad SIT on him while I do the job for him, I cannot seem to get him to brush like he should, cannot get him to floss like he should, and cannot get this message to sink in. I am beyond exasperated. I am just ready to give up! Well, not really, but SERIOUSLY! What do I do? I've already told him I want him to pay for these next fillings. And no, this is not related to his Crohn's at ALL. It's related to sheer laziness, in my opinion.
