How did u get them to stop? We have tried everything. Even not talking about it and it not getting any better. She is starting to loose teeth now so i really want ti stop this plus she doesnt pay attention to anything when she does it. Ideas?

I have a 6 yr old that just lost her 5th tooth and we can't seem to break from it :(   although now she seems to only do it A) when she's in trouble B) when she's tired

My son stopped sucking his thumb around when he turned 4.  We never paid any attention to it, never tried to make him stop, he just stopped on his own.

My daughter is 9 and she still does...mostly when she is feeling tired.  There are more and more nights that I'm noticing she doesn't, so that is good I guess.

She is almost 4 and still sucks her finger... Oh how I wish she had a pacifier like her older 2 sisters that were done by 2 1/2.
