The girl is 20 months old, and it is not her fault that she loves her game of picking things from the room and throwing them out of balcony and watching them fall.
She has been told in plain English not to do this, and she does understand that perfectly.
But, she still does this on purpose - I know this because she looks at me before the act, smiles, and continues her deed. Then she comes over to me and points out to the thing fallen on the ground.
I talk to her loudly and tell her to say sorry. She complies, and then repeats the deed again.
Timeouts don't work - I have tried to make her sit and hold her and count till 150. It doesn't seem to bother her much as she sits calmly. Definitely it will bother her if I count till 250 but that requires too much effort on my part. It is tiring for me.
Last time I grabbed her and put in another room, alone, and closed the door for some time. She wailed for some time, and I didn't know if that was the correct move from my side.
Anyways, she repeated the deed again sometime later in the day.
It is tiresome for me to keep on going down to the ground floor to pick up things repeatedly. The door of balcony cannot be closed since the child stares down on the street from there and self soothes.
How to punish the toddler for "deliberately" throwing things out of balcony?
