My little boy has a fascination with throwing things right now. Rocks, sticks, whatever he happens to find on the ground and decides he’s in that mood. I’ve explained he’s not to throw things at other people and he understands that. I’m not having the same success, however, with getting him to stop throwing things at the dogs. Good thing we’ve got labradors. They’re smart, gentle with kids, well disciplined and have a high threshold for pain.
