When a child is struggling to behave, this printable letter from the Tooth Fairy can be used to be understanding but also to postpone a visit until the behavior improves.
Text of the letter:
I was disappointed to hear that you had been struggling with your behavior this week. I know it’s hard to listen, be kind and gentle, and do your chores, and I know that you’re a good kid who’s having a bit of a rough time. That’s very understandable.
I know you were looking forward to a visit from me, and I’m excited to collect your tooth and leave you a little reward! I think I’ll come back next week when you’ve had some time to feel better and collect your emotions.
I can’t wait to see you next week! Thanks for still being a great kid, and don’t forget to brush and floss every night.
