BF just quit finger sucking this year--he'll be 26 in October. Trust me. Head it off NOW. His parents tried getting rid of the lovey, using bitter apple, gloves, EVERYTHING. I told him he was going to have to give it up on his own or I was going to call his parents and post it on FB. That got his attention.
Good luck to you :/

my 6yo daughter just quit over the summer. we just admonished her every time she was caught sucking her thumb and i think that combined with kids teasing her on the school bus is what did the trick. my middle two never sucked their thumbs and i took pacis away around 9 months to prevent them from clinging to them. now my fourth is 3 months old and just "found his thumb." i'm hopeful that it won't be as tough for him to stop, but i'm not holding my breath! good luck!!

I sucked my finger until I was...way too old and embarrassing to admit! Nothing my parents did was going to make me stop. I finally stopped when I realized I was too old and decided on my own to stop. My middle son is a finger sucker. I had read a lot about it and most of what I read said that if you don't make an issue of it most kids will stop on their own around 4yrs old. We're going that route (he'll be 4 in 3 months) and I'm really hoping it works!! We have never said a word to him about his finger sucking and he has been doing it less often the past 6 months. I realize that this is probably advice that is not applicable to your situation. But I just remember being mad at my parents for making a big deal about my finger sucking and thinking that I wasn't going to ever stop just to show them!

I don't have thumb-suckers, but I do have a nose-picker. No matter what we say or do, my 3-year-old picks his nose and will do so til it bleeds. I'm guessing there are similar strategies for nose-picking?

I have an almost 3 year old thumb sucker so I will be going through this soon. My best friend put socks on the hands of her almost 6 year old (after talking with him and him agreeing - he wasn't ready a few months before but then came to her and said he was ready) at night. She also mentioned using gloves with all the fingers cut out except the one they suck. Maybe have them trade the lovey for a big special toy? And there is an appliance that pokes them when they try to suck their thumb but that just seems downright mean or from the middle ages or something. Good luck!

I think these problems can be solved if you keep busy your child in some other activity. This is my personal experience with my kid. I used to take him to dance classes and by diverting his mind the problem was solved.

These problems are certain with kids.But you don't worry. Keep your kid busy in other tasks.It might help you.

My 3 year old daughter has been a dedicated, voracious thumb sucker since infancy. When a blister began to form and I explained that when I was her age, mine had to be poked with a pin she switched quite easily to her finger and then slowly back to her thumb. Just a few days ago I put 10 m&ms in a jar. I told her she'd get to eat them all if she kept her thumb out of her mouth. We all helped to reminder he when her thumb was nearing her mouth but if it actually made its way there, she lost 1 m&m. We gave her great praise for trying so hard and reminded her how many were left in the jar. At the end of the day she was thrilled to have 5 left to eat. On day 2 she kept all 10 and today, day 3 she kept all 10 again and had not one reminder. I don't know if the m&ms were the trick or if she just became determined but I do think she may be through with the thumb.

Have a wonderful impression mate! I kinda surprised to read that input though you you show the theory very exciting indeed. Thanks!

I must agree that thumb sucking is really soothing and eases boredom but this should not be tolerated when they are already kids since it will impair their teeth.

You have great share and being so strict and rude is not a good option to deal with your child. Offering them other option and distracting them from thumb sucking is best way to get your baby to stop sucking thumb.

We are curing our 3 almost 4 of thumb sucking. We did band aids on his thumbs. He got a treat for not sucking his thumb over the band aids and a treat for keeping said band aids on. So far it has worked. We are on day 5 of no thumb sucking and it is a lot less painful than I thought.

I wouldn't mind toddlers extending a year or two on thumb sucking. A full grown adult who's into it would definitely be ten-folds more painful to watch.

The odd thing here is that those dentists know how much thumb sucking can impair teeth, yet are almost completely unconcerned. Personally, I wouldn't tolerate it, especially once the teeth start growing.
