Default DCK Influencing Daughter

Small little vent....
My dcb 2.6 yo sucks him thumb all the time. My daughter does not and still uses nuk at night...about to break that habit after christmas.
Lately my daughter has started to suck her thumb because she watches dcb.
I have now been taking his and her thumb out of his/her mouth and saying "yucky."
Has anyone had similar situation and how do you handle it?
If the parents are okay with it that is one thing but I dont want to influence the rest of the daycare.

One of my sons sucked his thumb for 4 years. I should have given him a paci when he was little. Anyway, if your dd will keep a bandaid on her thumb that could work.

Wash their hands each time, or have them wash their hands. They will earn that thumbsucking = stop what you are doing and hassle with the soap and water.
