How do I get my son to stop sucking his thumb?

The dentist says thumb sucking has become a real problem for his teeth. I have tried just about everything.

  • He'll grow out of it on his own but in the mean time you could try putting lemon juice on his thumbs and see if that deters him. You can also try distracting him. If you see the thumb going in, see if you can get him interested in some activity.
