I have a 4 and 3yr old who have already broken 4 windows by throwing their toys, I have tried time outs, sending them to their room, and yes spankin them on the bottom but nothin I have tried seems to work. They just destroy everything, throwing andhitting things.

next time they do it what you need to do is get out a trast bag and bag up all the toys. let them know that because they arent playing with them nicely they cannot have them. they may cry for a good bit and then get over it. you can slowly give them back the toys as they earn them. make sure to put the bag somewhere they cannot get it. thats what worked for my son. but once they start to act up again just take them away. sometime for a day sometimes for a week. it really depends on how long it take for them to understand the idea of the punishment. good luck

Tell them if they continue to throw things that you will start throwing their toys out one by one. They probably will not like that and you don't even need to throw them away. Just take the toy that they throw and pretend to throw it in the garbage, but secretly hide it. Once they get the picture and stop throwing things, they can have their toys back.
