I babysit a little boy with a temper. If I tell him no, he chucks his toy across the room and picks up other toys and throws them. I don't put up with that in my home. I have a three year old who has never thrown tantrums (not because I am a perfect parent, she's just a very, very easy going kid). So my solution is to pick him up, say we don't throw and put him in a corner. He normally throws a fit, cries and yells for about a minute, then calms down. After he calms down, I give him another minute of sitting and tell him he can go play, but not throw.
His dad doesn't discipline him, just picks up what he throws. (But dad only has him for a month in the summer...)
So, is that a good way of handling the situation, or is he too young for timeouts?
