If something gets thrown, its gone immediately and a stern "we do not throw things" and walk away.

A hit gets the same stern warning and if you get hit again, timeout. Try to catch the hit before it lands and explain "we don't hit mommy, we use gentle touches" and walk away.

Thanks, I have been doing that with hitting. I will take toys when he throws them. Hopefully he gets the hang of it soon!

This is what I do for my 17 month old. It only took.a few days and she stopped completely. She used to throw food at meals too. I took her from the table every time and told her no. And she can't eat with.us till.she stopped, she got the point in a few days and stopped that too.

DS gets a timeout for either infraction, and throwing things gets the thing taken away.

He just turned 2, do timeouts really work at this age?

Eventually. You have to be consistent. He'll learn.

my son will be 2 in August.  When he acts out, I give him a warning. Then if he doesn't listen after that warning, I say "time out" and just simply take him away from what is making him act out.  So if it's a toy or food or what have you, he gets taken away from it.

so it's not your traditional time out that you would give a 5 year old, but it does put him in a different setting so that he can calm down.

My son will be two in Aug. and he gets timeouts for these actions and a few other things. Timeouts can work at this age. He has certain spots that I make him sit in timeout in, and now if he gets a timeout I can point and tell him to go sit in timeout and he does.
