Is thumb sucking hereditary

Thumb - lisp


 

Hello,
I have to ask something again. Our daughter 33M. Has been sucking her thumb since the beginning. Our children's dentist, as well as our family dentist, are both relatively relaxed. The front teeth are a bit forward, but both advise against getting used to the thumb with cramp.
What I now notice, however, is that our daughter is lisping extremely. Now really enormous after a boost. In my panic, which unfortunately always sets in very quickly :-(, I then tried to introduce the thumb garage last night. The little one also tried to join in, but couldn't sleep for hours. I sat next to your bed, I stroked her, but at one point she said in tears that she just couldn't make it.

I'm so confused about what to do. Our little one is so sensitive, your thumb gives you comfort and security. And especially now that she is going to kindergarten this week, she will certainly need him too. What am I doing? Does the lisp grow together? My husband also lisped as a child and then "language healing lessons" at school. He still lisps today if you pay close attention. Is something like that inheritable.

I would be very grateful for a few experiences. By the way, during the day we stop sucking as soon as we see it. That works relatively well.
She also has a cuddly toy. It's the station wagon she needs. Incentives with rewards do not work either, or she tries, but then it does not work.

Thank you, Cerrin77

Answer:

Thumb - lisp

Dear C.,
it is a shame if you stress your daughter and yourself because of it. Please take it relaxed and be the only one to react with inconspicuous distraction when your daughter sucks her thumb during the day. Lisp has nothing to do with it and you can even become a daily announcer with an "S" error!
All the best!
