As soon as they understand what no means (thoroughly get on them through them and around they ass)
I would beat the color off a kid if they even look at me wrong
Well there ate other ways to punish a child like time out but if it comes down to getting spanked the child should at least know right from wrong
My daughter is 2....she understand no and what is ok and isn't....she doesn't get spanked but she has gotten popped on the hand or leg....gotta start early....
spare the rod spoil the child so i agree when the child learns the difference between right and wrong.. but i do believe if you telling them to do wrong or showing them wrong they tend to mock wat they see
