We started using Love & Logic with our twins when they were 17 months old. If they threw their cup, we'd say, "Uh Oh, so sad your cup has to go back in the fridge," and we'd make sure they saw us put it away. If they threw food, we'd say, "Uh Oh, it's so sad you don't want to eat nicely with us," and we'd take their food and put them in their crib. When we put them in the crib we'd say, "I'll be back when you are sweet." We'd leave them there until they were calm for a minute or two. When we went to get them out of the crib we'd say, "I'm so glad to have my sweet girl/boy back," and we'd give them a hug and kiss and send them on to play. Within a week or two we had no more intentional food throwing.Â The key is to make sure there is an undesired consequence every time food is thrown.Â Consequences speak much louder than words. GL!
