8 Annoying Child Habits That Are Actually Normal

Your child always throws pencils, toys, and other objects. If you have a baby, they throw their pacifier on the floor and cry until you give it back to them.

What happens:

First, babies are prone to impulsive behavior and they can’t control it because their brain hasn’t completely developed yet. Second, throwing things is also a good skill that children have to practice: they develop their fine motor skills and coordination between their hands and eyes. Third, when a child is throwing something, they learn the cause-and-effect relationship (if you throw it, it falls down).

What to do:

Try to explain which things may be thrown and which shouldn’t be thrown. As a rule, a 2-year-old toddler can already understand this.
