Or you can pull the piece away from the blade after it is cut before letting go of the trigger. I always use a sacrificial fence setup for small moldings, I always called it a "shooting board"

But the small piece will still be there to get slung to who knows where.

Exactly what I do

I clamp the plywood onto the bed of the miter saw and cut the small trim on the plywood. Not only does it not sling parts all over the place the plywood gives you a good reference point to cut the trim from.

The reason it slings the small pieces is the piece has no support on the back after being cut, and will move while the blade is spinning and the blade will catch it and throw it. It will startle you if you aren't expecting it.
Yes, I had a similar problem years ago. I started using one of those wood holder things that you could move up and down so that the wood wouldn't move after or during the cut. I didn't have much problem after that. I tried to find a picture, but IDK what they're called to show you. It's basically a saw horse with the height being adjustable, so however tall your saw is, you match the height and set your wood on that and it feeds it to you.
