Comments from parents

At first I thought it wasn’t working but then it got less and less and he just stopped


Remember, regular listening is the key to success!

A self-help relaxing recording for children aged about 4-9 years who want to stop sucking their thumb and / or their fingers. Of course it may be the parent or the dentist who is most concerned and committed to this so bear in mind that it isn’t possible to force children to do something against their will. Nevertheless often children themselves would quite like to stop but they just don’t know how to do it. This gentle & relaxing recording can help them feel more confident and comforted without the need to suck the thumb so they can more easily and happily let the habit go. Some children may do this more or less immediately while some may do it more gradually over a period of time. Children can be proud and parents and dentists delighted when the children are successful. Remember that success at first may consist of doing it much less rather than stopping completely overnight!

Play the recording at bedtime

They can relax and drift off to sleep at the end. If you find that they fall asleep more or less immediately, let them listen at a quiet time earlier on before bedtime instead, or as well as, when they go to bed. The recording should be in addition to, rather than instead of, any usual bedtime rituals or stories so that they don’t feel deprived in any way.

Imaginative framework

The story takes children on an imaginary swinging hammock that turns into a magic hammock  and flies off to meet other children who want to get rid of habits that they are ‘fed up with’.  They bathe and play in the special, magic pool receiving powerful suggestions for feeling strong, comfy, confident, grown up and happy to be in charge of their thumbs. Then they imagine themselves happily acting out everyday activities being firmly in charge of their thumbs and feeling very proud of themselves. At this point they rejoin their magic hammock and fly home to their beds and snuggle down to sleep.

Successful approach

This kind of approach is completely natural. Research shows that when a person first acts out each positive step in their imagination, it increases the likelihood of their success in the real world. This CD contains powerful suggestions for boosting confidence and self-esteem. The language and topics used are carefully crafted to appeal to the interests of this particular age group. NB Some children may seem more or less mature than their chronological age.
