Thumb Sucking Habit

I feel strongly that as a parent, you should reward a child to eliminate a harmful and sometime deforming habit as compare to punishing them. My recommendation is to place a band-aid, sock, or mitten over the child’s hand or thumb before bedtime and really get that child excited about not taking it off all night until they can show you in the morning. That’s when you will reward them with their favorite “something”. Be creative. Keep it going for at least three or four nights in a row to be the most effective.
