Sikha.... i used to follow dis rule... what is not meant for kids should be put higher than their reach... think like a child as to what she may just throw(n u dnt want 2 throw) just place it higher. Rest let her throw,learn... she is developing a very imp activity motor skill.... so let her do that. When she throws teach her 2 keep it back by singing some cleanup song.... that ways even if she doesnt clean she knows clean up is also following...

Hi Lohita, one very effective way, though a very harsh one is, that throw a toy on the floor and let it break. and then point it to him that see things break like this and he will not be able to play with them anymore.

Hi Lohitha, what Shikha an Carol have said is true... toddlers like to explore sounds and activities at this stage. So rather than stopping the child, take precautions. Don't put expensive things near the child, get him his own remote etc to throw and play with, give him an old remote if you have any. Give her some wrapping paper which will make the scrunching sound etc. SHe will grow out of this phase.

Hi lohitha, it's very common for toddlers to throw things down often, as they want to test the newly learnt skill I. e picking up, holding and throwing. They also want to test the cause and effect - what happens every time I drop down a ball - it bounces back, or every time I drop the remote, mom comes running to pick it up. You build a tower, it's lot of fun for her to knock it down. So you firmly say No when she drops anything valuable. But do not show much reaction in body language or in words. Just say NO. But try to replace valuable things with her toys such as plastic balls or anything light in weight to play indoor or any toy that has an effect on pressing a button or pulling a string or twisting a knob. I used the ball popper for my son which kept him busy. The battery operated ball popper pops out the balls and he used to retrieve and put them again in the slot to pop again.
