Not just food off his tray, but everything and anywhere. ITs not a huge problem so if the consensus is that this is normal and they grow out of it, then I can deal with the throwing. But I want to know if I should be corrrecting this behavior and if there is a more effective way than just saying no and picking the item up. If it is his bottle or sippy I give it back to him, if it is a toy or other object I just move it and he goes on to play with the next toy. Any ideas, opinions or suggestions?Answer Question
Ignore what you can. Don't pick things up & give them back because usually 9 out of 10 times he's going to do it again & it becomes a game to him. If you laugh at the behaviors you want him to stop doing he won't ever stop throwing if he gets a rise ' out of you for doing it.' & last but not least have him pick it up, try being consistent in telling him to pick it up & it'll take some time but it'll reverse itself if you stick to your guns', so to speak.My 22 month old went through a similar stage.
