I would tell her to take away the cars when he throws them at her. ANYTHING that he throws at her she needs to take away... put it in a box and put it in the attic, or anywhere that the boy can not get to.

How old is he? If he's around 1.5-3 it's probably just a stage which in that case I'd do as holly suggested, if he's a bit older he really shouldn know better then to throw toys and have tantrums but if he is older I'd confiscate and have a earn back system for good behaviour coupled with a talk incase something is troubling him to result in him acting up.

She needs to take him to his doctor and tell the doctor what is going on and have him tested. This is not normal behavior for a child. Something is going on. Once he is tested, they can form a plan to get him the help he needs and even therapy.
