Throwing things has always been a problem with my #toddler, Joshua. Everything he gets his hands on, he throws. After reading a bunch of parenting articles, I realized he just wants to explore and find out how things work. What happens when he throws a toy, does it fly? Does it fall? It’s also because he didn’t know how to communicate yet so sometimes he throws things to get attention.
I noticed that it gets better as he grows older. By now, at almost 3 years old, he can speak in sentences and able to communicate. So throwing things has lessened.
A subscriber asked me how to handle this toddler problem. I share with you an article from Toddler Approved that gives valuable tips on dealing with toddlers throwing things.
