I know that this is an issue that parents have been dealing with since the dawn of time, so hopefully someone has a few ideas. My ten month old throws food out of her high chair. At first, I thought it was her way of telling me she was done. I now know that it is a form of entertainment while she is chewing. I would like a gentle but effective way of teaching her that this is not acceptable behavior. It can be so frustrating and yet so funny sometimes. She likes to throw it, and then laugh at me when I pick it up. She also laughs at me when I tell her no. I tried ending the meal when she started throwing it, but I'm not sure she connected the two events. I am new to this forum and new to the notion of gentle discipline as I was spanked as a child. I have just started disciplining her, and I intend to read some books when I get the time . Thanks for any ideas you have.
