I still brush all of my kids teeth at night. They are 1, 5, 7, and 10. Yup.

They brush in the mornings and I do a quality check. I also brush dds in the mornings with her.

Ava (6) brushes her own, but I check to make sure they don't look scummy before bed. I still brush Faith's (4) and Eli's (2).

Re: How old

Mine all brush at the same time so I supervise my 8yo and 5yo while I brush my 3yo. I check my 5yo while my 3yo 'finishes up' aka practices.

That makes sense. DS has some fine motor issues and I think that's why it's taken him so long to get to the point that he's managing brushing sort of "ok". He really could do better but I feel weird helping such a big kid! He can't tie his shoes yet.
