My daughter throws anything and everything she can hold in her hand right now. I asked her speech and ot about it and they just say she must be going through a throwing phase. I get that kids go through phases but can you offer me any tips on how to deal with it? I know she's having issues with not getting to be outside much ....... but I can't even do the indoor sensory things with her because she just takes them and throws them! She screamed and cried today during OT because she just wanted to take her activities and throw them. The ot just kept putting up the activity and pulling out a new one. She did finally find one thing my daughter would do without just picking it up and throwing it. Is that what I should do? Should I just put everything away and have 20 activities lined up and keep going through them one by one, putting each away whenever she throws anything????
I don't know ....... I'm so frustrated I just want to start throwing ........ throwing everything out the door so there's nothing left in the house for her to throw.
