Just My 2 CentsI just saw this, and though I didn't have time to read all the replies, I just wanted to put my 2 cents in since we had the same problem with my dd and we're doing pretty well now. Sometimes my dd even reminds me to brush her teeth now! Every kid is different, but what worked for me with both the teeth brushing and nail clipping is to let her brush my teeth (prepare to be gagged and impaled) while I'm doing hers. When she didn't like that anymore I let her brush her doll's teeth or a doggie or whatever for as long as she wanted. If she felt rushed at all she wouldn't let me do my job, but doing it simultaneously worked best- brushing while she brushed. It seemed to distract her and she felt like she was mommying too. GOOD LUCK!!
