The Story Behind StopBit

My teen-aged son, Max, routinely bit his thumb knuckle to the point that he broke the skin and it became callused. While he didn’t want to engage in this behavior, he found it almost impossible to quit.

This behavior typically occurred when he was doing homework, working on his laptop, or engaged in similar activities. It became clear that he was not even aware that he was biting on the skin around his fingers. He believed that he could quit this habit it he was more aware and more cognizant of when he was doing it.

As a concerned parent, I would tell Max to “Stop it” when he would engage in this unwanted behavior. He always appreciated the reminder. Unfortunately, I couldn’t be there all of the time to remind him.
