Thumbsucking/Oral Fixations

"Some children NEED to have something in their mouth, be it their thumb, fingers, shirt, toys, cat's tail, etc. Encourage them to replace the object with something more appropriate, perhaps a pretzel rod. This behavior can also an indicator the child is bored, frustrated, or tired."
