Throwing Problem?

Do you have a throwing problem in your childcare?


Every now and then I get a little one who constantly throws toys, cups, and anything they can get their hands on.  I'm sure it's part of a curiosity stage.

I've found that giving them something they CAN throw and redirecting their attention to that helps dramatically.  I always have soft balls and socks that I ball up for children to throw.

When I catch a child throwing something they should not throw, I say, "don't throw that, go find a soft ball."  Most children soon begin seeking out the soft balls and socks without my reminders.
