throwing

Hi. My 2 yr. old thows his toys around, and throws his wooden blocks around, and could hurt if it lands on you. When I tell him; no dont throw the blocks, he just keeps doing it and laughs.

so take them away.  problem solved...  he laughs because you don't do anything about it. 

in my house if it gets thrown it ends up on the fridge or in a closet.  end of story.

I agree! when he throws it the first time you tell him, No if you throw it again im going to take it away and when he does it again (not if) you take it away. My son is also 2 and hes doing the same thing. but i found this to work wonders!!

I tell my daughter no once and then after that I tell her if she does it again I'm going to throw it away. She does it and I take it and pretend to put it in the garbage. Never gets thrown again. Good luck!

Take the blocks away and tell him he can have them back when he is ready to behave with them

Definitely take away WHATEVER he decides to throw.  He will stop throwing, trust me!  lol

dd tried to do this so i stopped her hand from throwing them and told her firmly:  do not throw toys.  you must appreciate what you have and you can hurt someone.  do it again, and i will take it away.

if she does it again, i take them away. if she cries then she cries.  when she was that age, i would explain to her again why i took them away and then if she cried more, then she cried more.  kids have to learn!

That is because, at 2, it is FUN... he is learning about his body and what it can do, and he is developing motor skills...

Maybe you can try redirection- get a bin, put a target on it, and make it a game... Tommy, we ONLY throw our blocks into the bin... lets see how many points we can score!  Blocks thrown other than at the bin have to go to the naughty spot (or thinking spot, or time out, or whatever you use... ).  My boy has actually put himself IN timeout so he could sit and keep his toys company...  and for th emost part, stopped throwing his toys (except into the toy box)

I put toys in timeout when they get thrown.  They go in a bin at the top of the closet for a while.

If she throws anything, I warn her. If she throws it again I grab it and put it on the counter so she can see it, but can't reach it. That way she knows if she throws anything it will be taken away.
