Does your LO know how to brush their own hair and teeth yet?

Zoe understands the concept of brushing her hair and will give it a go herself by bashing the brush against her head but we are still brushing her teeth as all she wants to do is bite the bristles!

I still brush my 4 year old and 5 year olds teeth. They do it first and we give it a once over when they are done, they just don't do a good enough job.

Lew just bites the toothbrush even when I am brushing. He has no concept of the back and forth motion on his own. I also still go over my 4 year old's teeth when he is done brushing.

I don't brush his hair at all. I just run my fingers through the crazy curls.

Avery brushing her teeth means biting the brush, LOL!

she knows the concept of putting the brush to her head, but honestly she has no hair to brush!

Kaylee does really well brushing her teeth, she copies what I do. I try to get her to let me go over them when she's done, but she won't always let me.

She doesn't brush her own hair, she has no interest in it.

He has the concept down, but he's not proficient at it. We let him do his own thing for both (though his hair doesn't need much brushing cause he doesn't have much still) and then we help or "halllp".

He is great at brushing his teeth, really great. I let him brush, then I go over them just to be sure.
He brushes his hair, but he's not really good at that.

Joey tries to do both, but I have to redo them. He wanders around saying "brush, brush, brush!". He's so sweet!
