Had Enough with Thumb Sucking

enough thumb suckingIn June I finally decided our house had enough of thumb sucking!! My then 3 year old son was an avid thumb sucker, day, night, in the car, watching tv, you name it and his thumb was in his mouth. We tried the nasty nail polish, he just licked it off. – Amanda – read full testimonial

Some children develop a thumb sucking habit. They use it to soothe and comfort themselves. Unfortunately they can damage their teeth and develop worms from sucking on a dirty finger. Childhood thumb sucking can be unhealthy and a social stigma. This stage is when parents should intervene and help their children break the habit. Some of the ways they can do this are:

Here are a few additional tools to help parents about when and  how to stop thumb sucking in addition to our thumb guard.

Reward system – a game-playing and reward based system works best. Use a calendar to mark the days your child does not thumb suck. Small gifts can be the rewards.

Ordeal therapy – try reverse psychology by pointing out how your child is neglecting the other fingers on the hand. Give him/her a timer to make sure each finger gets equal time. It really helps in breaking the habit.

Create distractions – if you notice that he or she is sucking, then try to engage him/her in a fun and constructive activity. Make sure it is something that requires the use of both hands.

There are many different recommendations about how to stop sucking thumb. Parents can consult a doctor or dentist for suggestions before making a final decision. Sometimes a combination of solutions works well. It is imperative for children to break the habit before their permanent teeth come in. The damage can affect their health and appearance.
