my 17 month ds loves playing ball. he has lots and catches and kicks them around but if i say throw to me he says no and won't. he's always been like this. why/

Maybe he thinks you won't give it back. If my ds has hold of something he likes, nothing will break his little grip on it!

that's true and i never thought of that. lol! thanks. it's really annoying because it means we can never play a game

He is only 17 months, don't worry about it. Playing games will come as he gets older.

should i not expect him to throw the bal back at 17 momths (nearly 18)?

I can't imagine my ds doing that when he was that young...!

I don't mean proper throw just passing to me instead of saying 'no' and sending in different direction or holdin on

Is that too much to expect at his age?

I agree that he doesn't want to let go of it! I think that co-operative game playing comes rather later in life smile
