Henry Warren is a father of three, but his son has a problem that many parents can relate to: his son hates to brush his teeth. They had tried many different methods to give their son incentive to brush regularly, but so far, nothing had stuck. Hopefully, this clever approach makes all the difference!
The morning after the boy lost a tooth, he checked under his pillow…only to find nothing. Morning after morning, he woke up without any news from the Tooth Fairy…until one day, he received a very formal letter outlining the problems their department had encountered. (Transcribed below).
Dear Mr. Warren,
This letter is to inform you that I have now taken receipt of your tooth and it is being duly processed in our system.
You will have noticed there has been a delay in our payment. Mr. Warren, 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 to the teeth we appraise. However in this case your tooth had to be referred up to the committee for further analysis.
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.
Mr. Warren 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.

Warren posted the letter on Twitter, and people loved it! He had still given his son a reward for losing a tooth (a big deal!) but had nudged him in the right direction to help him care about his teeth a little more. Adorable!
