A father prepared a very official looking letter from the tooth fairy to warn his son to take care of his teeth
Not a bad idea at all.

IT CAN BE a bit of a nightmare to get your kids in the habit of brushing their teeth. So what better way to do it than to instill a bit of fear in them with a letter from the tooth fairy himself?

A man on Twitter named Henry did just that. With a very official letter from Barry T. Tooth Fairy, he made sure that his son wouldn’t be skipping out on brushing his teeth any time soon.

The letter was to address the delay in payment for his son’s tooth.

I have to inform you, that this is due to the condition in which we found said tooth. We expect a certain amount of wear and tear on the teeth we appraise. However in this case your tooth had to be referred up to the committee for further analysis.

The tests came back positive for sweets.

We believe this is due to the lack of care and attention by yourself. We have detected more than trace amounts of Fanta and residual amounts of both cereal and chocolate which have not been removed by appropriate brushing technique. We recommend you review your practice here as a matter of urgency.

However, Mr. Tooth Fairy showed some mercy.

We will accept the tooth on this occasion but we need your assurances that the condition of your next tooth will be significantly better or we will withhold payment.

Who could have ever guessed that the tooth fairy was such a bureaucrat? People have applauded Henry’s parenting skills and creativity in dealing with the situation.
