    It's easy to post on here and say to do x but in all honesty things happen in the heat of the moment. I'm sure I would of lost my cool too!
    This!

    Hindsight and thinking things through makes it seem like it was such an easy solution and you totally failed but in the moment you are in shock - have nfi what to do and just react. And that is ok.

    My DS is 3.5 and is still doing ridiculous things. He *knows* some of these things are naughty but still does it.

    It still frustrates me. I lose my cool. But that does not make anyone a bad parent.

    And if its the first time its happened - it shocks you. Just like the first time DS swore. I had no idea what to do. DH was in shock. DS seemed oblivious to what happened.

    It'll be ok

    Prevention is better than cure with 2 year olds - rn wove breakables put of reach.

    When you are explaining something is wrong keep it short and sweet - the less words the better. 15 seconds. Don't try and explain too much as a 2 year olds attention span isn't long.

    It's a hard age - good luck!

    After saying I was upset the bowl was broken and would he like to say sorry and have a cuddle, I would probably try to get him to use a more appropriate object. Like a ball.
    Ds does stuff like this when he wants our attention, is tired or needs something else. Lots of boundary testing recently!

    Eta. I would get him to watch me throw out the broken bits too. Ds broke a glass a few weeks ago (his own). Watched me clean it up and wanted me to "fix it". Sorry buddy, it's going in the bin!

    Put everything breakable out of reach. Two year olds are absolute heathens, no point getting too worked up about it. He'll grow out of this stage around 4ish.

    Just echoing what others have already said, at this age he's still learning. He doesn't understand that throwing and breaking something will make you upset and i doubt he's trying to do that. All he thinks is "wow.. look what happens when i do this "
    I would be moving anything you don't want broken and give him things he CAN throw.
