So a question or six for you lovely people today. Did you suck your thumb as a child? Do you still? Did it ruin your teeth? Did your mum put ‘stop and grow’ on your nails to stop you?! Did it work? Does your child suck their thumb and do you care?
So both my girls have a penchant for thumb sucking. I can’t say it bothers me, yet. They are both young, Kitty rarely does it unless she is tired or about to sleep and Lola is a bambino still, but on hearing someone tell me the other day
“you want to get that thumb out her mouth quick!”
I wondered what experiences others had to promote such a comment from a stranger.
I can tell you that i am a pretty laid back person. The comment didn’t bother me. It flew over my head somewhere but just managed to hang above me long enough to find me intrigued for others views on the matter.
So people of the World. To suck or not to suck? (And i mean thumbs, not lollies…;) And should i in fact care?
