So, I have been working with Kenz for the last couple weeks to help her stop sucking her thumb. We have had lots of talks about Buck Teeth and my friends and family who had to get braces because of their thumb sucking habits as kids. Well Kenz has stopped the thumb sucking during the day and only sucks it when she goes to sleep at night. I got really serious about stopping the habit when she lost her 2 front teeth. Today she came in my room and asked if I could look up buck teeth on the internet. It took me by suprise, I didn't really know she understood the concept of the internet. Anyways once she saw the images, she said "oohh yuck, I think I will only suck my thumb at night for 3 minutes now." It was funny, I don't know where the 3 minute rule came from, but the less she sucks, the better. I am proud of you Kenz!
