I have heard a lot of professionals state that if a young child is constant bothered to not suck their thumb, it reinforces the need/habit to do so. But if left alone about it, they outgrow it by around the 3rd grade. (I think I got that right.)
Wow. I think this is what happened to me. My parents harassed me, threatented me, bribed me...
All right, I'll be the oldest admitted thumbsucker on the board. I still do it. And I'm 27 years old. And at this point I don't think about it much, and don't really "plan" to stop. And when I was 15 most of my friends were 14 too. I don't think that I'm dangerously or unstable.
My DF's older sister still sucks her's too, and she's 34 (I think)
(I actually was thumb sucking while reading this initially...)
|the fact she hangs out with my daughter who is over a year and half younger is another sign she's immature[/B]|
