See that? That cutie right over there-->.
He's awesome. He's smart, generous, caring, sensitive, smart, loving, cuddling, funny, witty, and smart. (Did I mention he is smart?).
He also sucks his thumb. He's closer to 5 than 4.
I don't know why he is a thumb-sucker. I was not. His dad was not. But he is. We certainly didn't teach him this trick.
It needs to stop.
We've talked to him about it. I've used a glove that has all fingers but the thumb cut off for him to wear, but it is hot and uncomfortable. We've tried bribing him. We've tried to restrict it to bedtime (in the hopes that we could then work with him from there). We've threatened him with the stuff you buy that makes it taste horrible. Nothing has worked so far.
Any recommendations that you have in getting this habit stopped would be much appreciated.
Because his little sister does it to, so I will need to keep an arsenal of tips on hand to find something that works for her in a couple of years.
Go visit We Are THAT Family to see the backwards edition of Works for Me Wednesday (where the blogger asks for tips rather than gives them) and see what other questions people have that you might could help them with!
