Any of you experienced grans know how to deal with a toddler who throws things?
DGS age 2, chucks stuff, and I know it's normal for toddlers to do this to some extent, but it's difficult to be in the room with a tot who uses every object he can lay his hands on as a missile!
Hes a dear little chap, very happy and affectionate, but he doesn't seem to understand that he might hurt someone. It's also very trying to have mugs and plates thrown around at meal times.
Obviously harsh words and punishments are out of place at such a young age, and we've tried taking away toys and books which are thrown, but he ends up with nothing to play with.
I guess it's attention seeking behaviour, but we don't understand why, as he is always lavished with love and care from the whole family.
Perhaps its something we have to put up with until he grows out of it, but I would be so glad of some advice.
