I found some information online not too long ago from a Medical History journal that had a very interesting viewpoint on thumb sucking. Apparently, in the early 1900’s, thumb sucking in children was considered a brain disease and a neurological disorder! How crazy is that? Clearly that sounds ridiculous now and we know that thumb sucking is simply a habit that many older and younger children have a hard time breaking . It is important for parents to realize that thumb sucking is not something that can damage a child psychologically for life, but instead is something that you can help and encourage them to put an end to . Even though it is absolutely by no means a brain disease, it can have lasting effects on your child’s mouth, bite, jaw or teeth. PowerPoint Presentation: The Facts About Thumb Sucking The Facts About Thumb Sucking Thumb sucking is a very common and also very natural habit for young children. Babies have been shown to even suck their thumbs while still in the womb! It is estimated that about 80% of infants and children suck their thumbs at some point during their early lives. That number decreases to about an average of 15% when children reach the age of four. 15% is still a very large percentage and while you may be confused as to why your child insists on sucking their thumb, there are a number of reasons for the habit. Many children suck their thumb when they are scared, anxious or nervous. Children who are tired, bored and in need of soothing have also frequently been found to suck their thumbs . As mentioned, thumb sucking is an incredibly common and normal thing. But you want to break your child’s habit as soon as possible. If the habit persists far into their childhood, certain consequences and side effects could arise. These may range from damage to permanent teeth from thumb sucking which will cause dental and orthodontic problems, to self-esteem or social side effects.
