“Okay, Hart, show everybody what you have on your hand. Show ’em your hand — what’s on it?” King, 36, asked her son in an Instagram Story clip.

After he says, “I don’t know,” the King says, “It’s supposed to make you stop sucking your thumb. … Can you try to suck your thumb with that thing on? Let’s see if it works.”

When Hart says no, King tells the camera, “Okay, it’s working so far! We shall see.”

King revealed in a series of follow-up posts, she shared how she “decided to implement that anti-thumb-sucking thing because Hart’s palate is starting to get messed up.”

“He must suck his thumb really hard because [Hart’s twin brother] Hayes sucks his thumb as well, but it hasn’t changed his teeth or his palate or anything like that,” King shared.

“Hart’s is kind of raised and his teeth are crowded because when he pushes up on the palate, it narrows his jaw up here or whatever and his teeth are getting crowded, so we gotta cut that out.”

Hart’s thumb-sucking challenges comes after King revealed in a blog post in honor of World Cerebral Palsy Day how he had been diagnosed with hypotonic cerebral palsy.

“I was expecting this diagnosis,” King wrote of her son whom she shares with estranged husband Jim Edmonds.

“Even though he’s the same kid I expected it to hit me hard. But it didn’t. It didn’t hit me hard at all. In fact I felt relieved.”
