this damaging of stuff is getting old

OK so a couple months ago benvolio found his favorite new toy computer keys which wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't a laptop or if he left the button behind so i could reattach the keys. my husband ordered us both new keyboards and a cover for my laptop because he's really obsessed with mine. he's figured out how to get the cover away and has started ripping apart the new keyboard like not kidding was ordering a pizza online left the room to get my credit card come back and there's 2 keys now missing. does anyone know any tricks? so far what i've done is get mad and put him in time out but i don't know if he understands why any tips would be great.

I would just go to a thrift store and buy an old keyboard and while you're on your computer, give him the other keyboard to destroy

Punishing him will not help because as you said, he doesn't understand. Birds are known to chew and tear at things and their minds are like a child's so they are always looking for things to occupy themselves. If he has fun with your keyboards, it probably won't stop anytime soon.

I agree with the others, get an old keyboard (clean it up) and let him have it. Preventative measures will help as well. If you are using your laptop. It is easy to pick up and move about... just remove it from his reach. I know it might seem inconvenient to do it every time but if it saves the laptop, it is worth it.

I just spent $5 plus shipping to replace the right arrow key Maxx destroyed. He usually gets them and I am able to find them soon enough that not no damage it done. Not this time, He pretty much cracked it. It came out of his toy fund.
