Ok so here is the problem, my 17 month old, for MONTHS now has been in the habbit or whatever it is of throwing food, cups, silverware, etc off her tray when she gets bored. She has always had a good appitite so I dont think it is b/c she isn't hungry any more b/c after i let her down so goes and gets snacks out of the snack cupboard.
It is super annoying and really starting to bother me now. Ive tried telling her no, she acts like shes deaf, i give her mean looks she laughs, i dont give her back what she threw that doesn't work, i've started tapping her on her hand to get her attention and she STILL doesn't react to that either.
HOW DO I GET HER TO STOP THIS BEHAVIOUR!!!???

Cause and effect. She causes the food/cup to fall and the effect is your reaction. Ignore it and she should stop.
