We Are So Proud of you Mayet Family For Being There for Your Kid And For Setting the Right Example:
Taking time out for your children and making them engage in positive activities is perhaps the biggest challenge parents face these days. Children only learn by example, so if you want them to follow a certain path lead them. And this is what Mohammad Yasir’s parents did. What could be more rewarding than cultivating healthy habits in your children and then getting recognition for it?

So, What Made Them Think Of Cavity Crusher??
While talking to a news channel Mohammad Yasir said, he came across research on the internet that tooth cavities in children have become number one chronic illness in the world. This made him search for the reason, and he got to know it is mostly because children don’t brush their teeth for the recommended four minutes.
And the idea was born. Cavity crusher monitors if the child has brushed their teeth or not and for how many minutes they brushed them and send all the information to the parent.
