“MONU take out the thumb from mouth.” Smita has to repeat this sentence many times a day. Her son Monu, 10 yrs old is habitual of thumb sucking. She feels very shameful due to this habit. Actually thumb sucking is the indication of mental irritability of the child. This instability arises during foetal life. The mental stress and irritation of mother directly transfer to the foetus during pregnancy. If the mother has any emotional suppression, mental irritability, obstinate nature or bouts of anger during her pregnancy, it affects the child psychology more or less. It is always advised that a pregnant lady should be always cool, calm; she should read good books so that her mind should be peaceful. How the mother behaves that decides the child’s temperament.

It has been proved that the foetus can understand the lot of things. Abhimanyu (son of arjun in mahabharat) is the best example for it. If the child is thumb sucker then the parents and family circumstances during pregnancy are responsible for it. In many cases the child acquire this habit at the age of 3-5 years.

In such cases, the emotional excitements of the child are responsible. If we keep a child always in discipline, keep on finding his faults and keep scolding him for every minor things, and compel him to follow only our commands without hearing his side peacefully can cause emotional excitements and it rises inferiority complex in him and then his mental irritability becomes outwards in the form of nail biting or thumb sucking. When the child sucks the thumb, his whole mind concentrate on it and his mental irritation gets diverted.

If anyone of the parents is anxious in behavior, the child may have the habit of thumb sucking. Medical science being very advanced and especially in Homeopathy the drug selection even for purely physical diseases depends upon the mental symptoms. So many diseases related with mind and emotion can be positively treated by Homeopathy.
