  • I had (and sometimes still have) the same problem. I told my son we don't throw anything but balls and took the object away. If I could anticipate the throw, I'd warn him that he was going to lose the object if he threw. How long I took the item away varied mostly dependent on the amount of damage it could do! Some toys I took away only for an hour or so, others I put away completely for a future time. You need to be very consistent about this. You can also try timeouts but they haven't worked for me. My son sits there and laughs at me..
