No no no. I did not suck my thumb. I think that if I had even had the urge to do so my mother would have constantly pried it out of my mouth. No one in my family ever sucked their thumb or a binky (pacifier) for that matter. I guess that may be odd in our society now, it seems every small child has a pacifier in their mouth. But I know that for the most part, no one in my family has any dental issues either. I know kids that suck their thumbs or pacifiers too long do often have problems.

Oh god no and I think this is one of the worst habits a child can pick up. I remember I didnt suck my thumb but my sister did and carried a blanket. Well everytime something happen weather it was when she got into trouble or was scared she would run for that blanket and suck her thumb. It took our family years to get her off it but eventually we did thank god. So far none of my kids have done it so Im lucky there.
