Welcome to Break Thumb Sucking
If you are worried about your child sucking his/her thumb or you want to help your child break this habit, then this site is for you!
Runa Mowla-Copley, the site’s founder, is a dental expert in thumb sucking. A highly experienced clinician, Runa set up a thumb sucking clinic in 2010 after spending years treating children whose jaws and teeth had been adversely affected by thumb sucking. A reformed thumb sucker herself, Runa became interested in the subject after dealing with her own child’s very persistent long term thumb sucking.
Prevention is better than cure. With this in mind, this site offers advice to parents and children wishing to break the habit.
The inspiration behind Charlie’s Thumb
Aimed at young thumb suckers, Charlie’s Thumb is an illustrated story. It is a cautionary tale about a young boy Charlie who finally manages to break his habit. It’s a great book for despairing parents who have a stubborn thumb sucker in the family.
