Our little Granddaughter, 3 1/2 yrs is so beautiful and cute, her name is Cassidy, but to our worry she had developed a squint, I know there are terrible things that happen to children, I do not want to sound selfish. ( I feel deeply for the poor little ones). Now the teacher at her nursery school, Candy Castle, says that it is because she sucks her thumb, she started at 3 months old, we thought it was so cute. But of course it is not such a cute or smart thing to do. That is why she is getting a squint, because she looks down at her thumb while giving it a good old suck. Her one front tooth is starting to protrude already, and she is only 3, she could disfigure her jaw and end up having all sorts of unessary problems. Operations bands, glasses, I do not know what other problems there will be. Now we have the task of getting that thumb out of her mouth. Oh dear, I think this is going to be a problem, short of cutting off her thumb (LOL) what do we do. Keep putting something bitter on it and persist, she is a stubbon and forthright little monkey, not taking kindly to us meddling with her thumb at all, (I think).
SO NIP THE THUMB SUCKING IN THE BUD, OR THE NAUGHT THUMB GRANDMOTHER WILL COME AND CUT IT OFF!!!!
