Brookline Patch Column: Nothing But the Tooth

In my The Brookline Parent column for Brookline Patch today, I look at the question of caring for toddler's teeth. As I note in the article, there's been an epidemic of tooth decay among toddlers. Fortunately, Muffin and Squeaker seem to be okay. If you read the article, you'll find out what we're doing and why I think it's a struggle for all parents to care for their kids' teeth in this day and age.

So go read Nothing But the Tooth, for the video of Elmo singing about the importance of brushing your teeth, if for nothing else.
