When Adeline has a toy or activity that she does not feel comfortable with she will start to throw it.  If we try to lace beads or build blocks "up"  Adeline throws them.  I bought these two toys for her for Christmas and I know they are a little challenging.  The last thing I wanted was Adeline to sit with the toy and just throw each piece to the ground so I simplified, and you know what, we have had no throwing and she is enjoying them. 

 I put the other pieces away and later I will add to each activity.


  1. I'm so glad to hear that someone else has the throwing problem. I have exactly that with my son - throwing when he gets frustrated. Like you I came to the conclusion that simplifying things was the answer and like you it has worked a treat. Glad you have had success

  2. It's great that you observed Adeline's reactions and made the necessary changes. Wonderful advice! Thanks so much for linking up with Montessori Monday. Have a wonderful 2012! Deb @
