I remember making a conscious decision to stop sucking my thumb when I was about eight. No-one tried to pressure me into stopping, I decided on my own. It was around the same time that I started calling my parents Mum and Dad rather than Mummy and Daddy. part of growing up I suppose Personally I wouldn't worry about it, he'll stop when he's ready to stop. My DD2 sucks her thumb and I am happy for her to do it until whenever.
