I find myself asking, “Did you brush your teeth?” and “Did you wash your hands?” all the time now. I didn’t exactly know for sure if the answer I was given was the honest truth. So, I imposed a response of “Great, let me smell your breath/hands.” It never fails! I get a smile and a run to do it if they didn’t actually do it, or a very willing child who lets me take a sniff. Luckily I haven’t smelled bad breath yet!
