We like to remind the parents of our patients that the journey toward becoming a true master of dental care is a lifelong one! That means, just like your children are just starting to learn how to care for their own smiles, you are still learning, too! So, why is our Dallas, TX team taking the time to tell you this, you wonder? Well, we know that you can feel as though you’re supposed to know all of the answers and that, when faced with attempting to be the teacher to your little one, you can sometimes worry if you come up short with answers, advice, or know-how! Consider some suggestions, so you can feel much better about things!
It’s Okay That Your Kids Need Time To Learn
Our team wants you to remember that your kids have just recently entered the realm of life on this planet, which means their very few years spent on earth makes them newbies to everything! So, while they may make strides and do quite will in general with their dental care, they may also fumble a bit, seem to forget everything they’ve learned at one point or another, or seem resistant along the way. The good news is, they will learn and it will be to their benefit now and in the future, as they develop excellent smile care habits.
It’s Okay If You’re Not An Expert
We remind you that even though you’ve been on this planet for a period of time much longer than that of your children and even though you’ve received dental care instruction over that period of time, you’re still not expected to be an expert! There will be things you just never saw coming for which you realize you don’t have answers. Rather than feeling bad about it, remember that it’s completely normal. As long as you are dedicated to your child’s dental care (and hopefully your own, too) and you’re open to learning and you take action to gather new details when you need them, you’re doing a wonderful job!
