My 2 year old son still sucks thumb. How should I make him leave this habit?
Young children get pleasure out of thumb sucking. So first of all don’t make an issue out of it. Just relax and try to keep your child involved in some activities. Logic at this age will not work and don’t ever try to use fear as a tool to make your child leave this habit. Talk to a pediatrician if he can help you with some medicine which you can put around the thumb.
Another reason of thumb sucking can be insecurity. Ensure that your child is getting a happy and loving environment, free from all kinds of stress. Quarrels or arguments between parents or between other family members can cause stress in a child’s life. With time, your son will surely leave this habit.
