My 3 year old son won't stop sucking his thumb, I've tried the thum medicine that is bitter tasting you can buy from the store to stop you from sucking your thumb, he liked the taste of it... I've tried hot sauce he made a face but continued to suck his thumb, I've tried showing him pictures of what thumb sucking can do to your teeth, I've tried showing him his things and how flat and pruny they look compared to the other fingers after sucking on them, I've even tried sticking jalapeño peppers on his thumbs it doesn't fase him. Anyone have any ideas to get him to stop sucking his thumb?

Send the message to him in many ways. Keep trying dear. I know it hurts to see him do it but be patient. One day you'll tell the story. Don't be harsh. Just use as many ways as possible sometimes even with a smile.

I referred to the rude tone in the first sentence you wrote dove. I wasn't whining about it, I also thanked you for the actual advice. I didn't have a problem with the advice, just the tone at which you wrote it. Thats all sweetie. God bless!
