When Sockie falls off

After watching the CD, my son decided to quit. He wore the Sockie to bed, but it either fell off during the night or he removed it in his sleep. After a few nights, he said Sockie was gone. He must have thrown it away. The dentist told him that he is going to put a rake into his mouth in two weeks if he doesn’t stop sucking his thumb.

4 year old child adopted from China

I was wondering if your program is guaranteed. My daughter turned 4 in October and she has been a thumb sucker since we adopted her from China.
