If you're going to bash, don't bother replying. I have a 5 1/2 year old who was recently called a baby at school by another girl in her class for sucking her thumb. She only does this when she's tired or upset and they have "rest time". How do I break her of the thumbsucking habit? I've warned her she'd be labled a baby for thumbsucking and that didn't phase her. She'll be 6 soon and has been sucking her thumb since she was about 7 months old. I don't think she even realizes she's doing it.
