Someone rightly said that bringing up a kid is a lot of theatrics and this father proved this rightly by sending a fake letter from the ‘tooth fairy’ to his son. Parents are ingenious characters who constantly come up with ideas to outsmart their offspring and try to steer them to be a better person. A London based father hit upon a novel idea to teach his son the lesson of keeping his teeth clean and the importance of oral hygiene. Henry Warren, took to such extreme measures to teach his son Sam the importance of brushing well and took the help of the ‘tooth fairy’ legend by penning a letter posing as the tooth fairy. The letter that he wrote was very innovative and took the internet by storm on his ingenuity and smartness. Sharing the letter on his Twitter account he wrote, “Our son is dreadful at brushing his teeth. Turns out the Tooth Fairy has had enough.”
Henry Warren wrote a brilliant letter which also accompanied a £1 coin but came with a strict warning. The letter which was signed Barry T Tooth Fairy stated that the tooth has been accepted but this was going to be an exception as there are residual amounts of Fanta, cereal and chocolate. The letter goes on to add that the delay in payment was because of the time taken to assess the quality of his tooth which had been subjected to inappropriate brushing technique and they need assurances that the condition of the next tooth will be significantly better.
The letter captivated the Twitterati and the tweet became viral in a very short time. The tweet has garnered around 6,300 retweets and 17,443 likes with around 273 replies. The letter we must say is an ingenious way of ensuring that the child learns the lesson and is the best example of parenting done right.
