: My 4 year old daughter with DS is always throwing things. Sometimes they are heavy things and hurt others, mostly it is household items which of course break. She has been reprimanded, given 'time out' (which she doesn't appear to understand anyway) - and still she does it. She thinks it's a game even though no one laughs but her and she often leaves her siblings in tears.
: Her early intervention teacher does time out too but offers no other help with the problem other than trying to change her attention to something else but as the throwing is random you never know when she is going to do it. She has been doing this for years by the way.
: Any ideas?
I have no ideas..just know how you feel! my son is 6 and VERY destructive and hyper! :(
