How do you teach a child to spit? In this instance it will be in regards to teeth brushing and spitting out toothpaste and also rinsing out the mouth.
DS2 (4 today!) cannot spit. I have no idea how to teach him nor do I think he understands what exactly he is supposed to do. He has seen me, his father, and his brother do it (again all in the aspect of teeth brushing). Rinsing out his mouth consists of him swallowing a drink of water. Because of these two things we only use flourinated toothpaste once per day and it is a very small amount (this routine was brought up by his pediatric dentist). His teeth are brushed twice per day.
Not sure what kind of background you would need on him. He has CP, requires max assist for standing and walking, and we are currently working on him using an open cup. He left side is weaker then his right. If you need more info on let me know.
