Kid has to brush teeth eventually

Q: My 14-year-old son does not brush his teeth, except during the week before a dentist appointment.

And we each do our part in preparing for the meal. The tasks usually include emptying the dishwasher, setting the table and preparing the food. We enjoy our meal and pleasant dinner conversation. At the end of the meal, each of us assists with clearing the table and moving the dishes to the sink.
