We have a serial thumbsucker in the family and we’re in the midst of a battle to stop her. I went to high school with a young man who was still sucking his thumb at age 19 when I last saw him.
It is not a good look.
Never having been a thumbsucker I don’t understand the attraction – although I do have nail bitten back to the cuticles. However Tracey felt the sting of thumbsucking’s attraction.
Tonight Tracey put a band aide on Miss7’s thumb to prompt her to stop. If this doesn’t work I’ve suggested a straight jacket, and failing that, amputation.
Let’s hope the band-aide works 🙂
