ETA - he doesn't floss every day, but if he has eaten something that leaves bits in his teeth such as lamb cutlets, he wants to get it out. Brushing teeth is not enough. And if those bits of food get stuck and stay there, it can create gum problems, baby teeth or not.

I don't think either of my kids have ever had food stuck in between their teeth. They have the typical wide gaps between baby teeth and, as the dentist explained, brushing properly should be sufficient in getting in there. I suppose it depends on the individual's teeth?
Anyway, as I said, I get dd1 to play around with floss just to get used to it. It's so surprising how many adults don't floss 😦
My youngest 2 follow the lead of my older 2. My eldest were horrendous as toddlers but are great now. So the younger 2 know no different.

What gets me is how Australian schools and universities consistently perform to a lower level when compared to schools overseas who don't expect 5 years or even 8 year olds to be able to read. So rather than look at what the overseas schools are doing right we continue to punish students and teachers who don't fit the Australian model that isn't really working anyway.
What a dumb dumb dumb idea.
