Catch the Thumb Sucking Early!

When I was a child I used to suck my thumb, and my parents paid the price with costly orthodontia. Now my daughter has headed down the same path. It’s taken us almost 8 years to kick the habit, and unfortunately it’s too late for her thumb sucking teeth. We tried all sorts of methods from nail polish to books about children who suck their thumb. In the end using positive reinforcement and simple rewards she is thumb sucking free.
