Did anyone else think the kid would fly and smash into the ground?
What happened to slamming a door shut with a string tied around a tooth? Or your dad just pinning you down and pulling it out with a pair of pliers?
Poor little guy. Sure doesn’t look like this little guy enjoyed it. The blood all over his face would be enough to scare a child. This is a terrible thing to do to a child indeed.
Let our Kids be Kids… bring back the creativity and the fun say ‘Goodbye’ to repetition and boredom! YES! We know that, but in this case I think the dad has gone way over board of being fun and into causing trauma. Cheapskate…so this dad can buy himself an expensive car, but can’t bother taking his son to see the dentist? This is extremely dangerous and irresponsible.
What if that had gone wrong? It wasn’t worth the risk if you ask me. I’m in no way offended by this, but I’m totally disgusted that a parent would even consider this a good idea at the risk of hurting their own child. Anyone with kids of their own and half a brain cell, can understand how foolish this is. If the tooth didn’t give way, the poor kid would have been dragged face first down the road. I’m sure the dad could find a better way to show his car off. I wonder what he’s really trying to compensate for??
Sure, his tooth might come out, but so could his whole jaw.
The kid was bleeding! When a tooth falls out by its own it doesn’t bleed like that, when you pull the tooth out and it’s not loose enough, it hurts and bleeds like that, poor kid. He probably damaged the gum and the next tooth & surrounding tooth growing in could have issues as well as, caused damage to the nerves that affect the sinus, not to mention how much could have gone wrong. He didn’t seem to enjoy it one little bit. He was crying all the way through.
That tooth is going to come out ready or not.
Maybe the dad is in debt after spending too much on a expensive car. LOL
Your little one will eventually lose his baby teeth, which is a milestone in the process of growing up. Fortunately, it is not usually too painful for kids when they lose their baby teeth, but the toothless pictures may embarrass them when they get older. Once a tooth does fall out, however, you need to know how to properly take care of the gums and the new permanent tooth that will shortly pop through.
Kids usually lose their first tooth by the age of 6 or 7, and they lose the last tooth, which is the second molar, by the age of 12 or 13. A tooth can sometimes take a few days or even a few months to fall out once you or your child notices that it’s loose. The length of time that it takes to fall out depends on how quickly the tooth root will dissolve or resorb. It also depends on how much your little one wiggles it. The more he wiggles it, the sooner it will fall out, and a new tooth will begin to appear in its place soon after. It can take several months to completely grow in.
So, parents please stop traumatizing your child. Just let nature take its course.
