What age is appropriate for a child to be spanked?
I am not looking to debate corporal punishment -- but to those of you who have found success with mild physical reprimand - how old do you think is too old to spank a child? How young shouldyou begin?
I start spanking my sister when she turn 8, this is the age when she get naughty. But I hardly spank her anyway because she learn from her mistake quickly. My mom stop spanking right after I reach puberty.
I think if some other punishment works you should use that. If you wonder whether you CAN spank the child, you'd better try something else. Spanking (like all punishments/rewards) should be used only if it works to change behavior/attitudes/actions. If it doesn't work--don't use it.
