Elly jumps to a conclusion here that no experienced mother would jump to. Kids learn that their actions result in certain reactions from those around them. If they throw their toys out of the crib and cry or yell for it, parents will typically go get it for them. It can quickly become a game, with parents constantly going in and out returning their child’s toy. All my kids did this at some point or another, but with my second child, I knew what to expect.
