That's where I am at right now with him 19 months he's a tough little guy and at least the weather is good where we can take the balls outside...so far my phrase I put above has helped tons but I am now changing that to "We don't throw...we roll...inside" and for outside play we stick with "we only throw balls!" And I sympathize with you on the collection of balls...one huge rope tub full!

We used the "we only throw balls" phrase and while it took a while it did work. We had amassed a HUGE basket of balls though and at about 26 months we realized we had to put a stop to throwing balls inside, his arm was strong and his aim accurate! :-)

So far the best thing I have figured out is to tell him we don't throw _____ (whatever it is he's throwing...we only throw balls and give him a soft indoor style ball to throw around. It's helped but it's still training in progress!
