As a father I am now experiencing the terrible twos with my son. I don’t remember my daughter being as mean spirited but that doesn’t mean she didn’t have her spells. My son has gradually became a “thrower” or a “tosser”. Simply meaning that when he doesn’t get his way he basically throws an item across the room, down the stairs or anywhere his arm will allow. How on earth do I correct this? I have tried smacking his hand with just enough force to sting. Doesn’t matter. I take away toys and he finds something else to throw. Shoes, sunglasses, iPods, you name it. Basically any small item he can get into his hand gets tossed when he is angry. My adventures of being a dad are to be tested and continued.
