I still suck my thumb I am afraid to say. Just wondered if their are any other parents who still do this?

it's better than sucking a fag isn't it? DD1 sucked her thumb till she 7. It's only a problem if you make it one IMO grin

I know a few that do. My cousin still does and he's 30

I had a friend who did this in the 6th form when concentrating. It was seen as a bit eccentric but nothing more. She was tall and pretty and it never stopped her. Thinking about it now I realize she was just being very much herself, which is impressive.

We had the same issue with our son; there are these spandex gloves online called Glovey Huggey they worked really well for him & he was in the 5th grade.

Nice reminder to kick that bad habit

Sorry betty but IMO there are many worse habits ( in the old days men used to suck stinky pipes didn't they? some still do shock) and when you're an adult you should do what want shouldn't you? As long as it was him wanting to stop.

Me too. And I know various other adults that do too.
And my teeth are fine.
And I don't care. I like it.
