At what age can you call a child "naughty?


A baby is incapable of being bad, naughty or evil. At what age is it OK to call an innocent child "naughty"? Do parents make their children naughty by giving them such a negative label?

    I was always told I was bad. Well at school any way. It did leave a stigma with me. But that was 40 years ago,

    Well when we were growing up my dad used to say our behavior was bad. I don't buy not using. Label. How else will a child learn. But no I wouldn't put a big N on them for doing something wrong.
