Funny Letter From Tooth Fairy About Brushing Teeth

If Your Kid Can't Brush Their Teeth For Sh*t, This Epic Letter From the Tooth Fairy Will Help

When Henry Warren's son woke up the morning after losing a tooth, he expected to find money under his pillow from the tooth fairy, but instead, he got a warning letter and a serious lesson about brushing. The hilarious dad took to Twitter to share the letter his son received from "Barry T. Tooth Fairy," and it's a genius solution to getting any child to brush better.

"This letter is to inform you that I have now taken receipt of your tooth and it is being duly processed in our system," the letter reads. "You will have noticed there has been a delay in your payment for the tooth. Mr. Warren, I have to inform you that this is due to the condition in which we found said tooth."

Barry T. Tooth Fairy then explains that the tooth required "further analysis" because of "the lack of care and attention by yourself." We imagine Henry's son's jaw dropped to the floor after receiving this, but we have to admit it, this is some grade-A parenting.

"We detected more than trace amounts of Fanta™ and residual amounts of both cereal and chocolate which have not been removed by appropriate brushing technique," the Tooth Fairy added. "We recommend you review your practice here as a matter of urgency."

Luckily, Barry is forgiving and will accept the child's tooth this one time, but it comes with a warning: "We need your assurances that the condition of your next tooth will be significantly better or we will withhold payment."

Parents all over Twitter are absolutely loving Warren's technique, and some even saved the official letter for their children.
