I am a teacher in a school that is K-8.... with all the flus and colds going around i find it amazing how many kids and even middle school students who suck their thumbs, fingers and hands... why dont we shun those behaviors like nose picking?? it is the same thing really, spreads germs, is completely gross. and i have noticed even some adults in the building who chew fingernails, etc, putting their hands in their mouths, do your kids do it? if yes, why does a parent allow it? i know babies need to suck for comfort but kids shouldn't! adults certainly shouldn't! how many illnesses would be avoided if we could all begin to shun the behavior like we do with nose picking....
