Jack went to the dentist this morning and he did good. Last time we had to hold him down to get his teeth clean, he just did not want to get them cleaned. We even took a timeout outside, away from the office - I talked and pleaded for a half hour and he didn't budge.
This time, he was a dream. They showed him hat they were going to do and explained everything. I He eventually became very relaxed and let the girl do whatever she wanted, polish his teeth, flouride treatment, x-rays. I had to remind him about presents, and being good and his birthday coming up, but he was great. It was like a magic pill - instant good kid. Lots of praise for him during and afterward.
As you can see, he was pretty relaxed this time.
