    What is the ideal time to punish someone?

    It depends on what they did to you.
    However, loving them could be the ideal thing to do. It may not be easy for you considering the depth of the offence; it you love them,
    they will have a change of heart.

    Remember, everyone has good side. By loving them, you would
    be able to discover the sweet part of their lives and this can be
    a great opportunity for you to excel beyond your widest endeavor.

    Finally, please LOVE that person. God loves you remember.

    I hope this little advice helps?

    You should never seek to punish especially when the punishment you seek against others can come back to punish you. Forgiveness allows you to release the pain within your heart to punish. Once you release the pain to punish you begin a new journey of forgiven yourself for being in the position of receiving the pain that caused you to want to punish.

    I agree with most of what others have said here. Behavioral science shows that punishment alone doesn't change behavior. It actually makes it slightly worse in the long run as a rule, by itself. 

    Positive-reinforcement, attention and love, should be given to someone when they make the right choice and do the better behavior. But an emphasis should be placed on making sure they know how to do what is right.

    Punishment can increase the effectiveness of positive reinforcement for behavior change, but should only be used when there is a clear risk or danger to the person who will be punished. Punishment should never be delivered out of irrational anger.

    I do not think you should punish someone unless they have done crime.

    The best thing to punish someone is right after he committed mistakes.  Hit him hard.

    Punishment does not work as well as rewarding desired behavior. I just studied this in psychology.

    First up whilst one may often feel inclined to punish someone particularly if they feel agrieved, hurt or damaged by the person concerned generally speaking i do not believe in punishing for the sake of punishing. Again it depends on the context, sometimes necessary natural consequences  are necessary to ensure the safety of the individual concerned or others but the main motivation behins the 'percieved punitive action' should not be do inflict harm or 'punishment' to another.Another problem with punishment is that it can be a slippery slope.For example, whilst punishment of say 'challenging' or so called 'bold' behaviour in children can be effictive initially or in the short term, after a period of time the level or intensity of punishment required will have to increase-not a good situation. In fact children who do not recieve adequate levels of positive attention will in fact begin to seek out negative attention (sometimes including punishment) in the absence of any other attention. As stated above i agree with others that a positive approach is prefferable.If somebody is to be punished however it would probably be best that it occurs as soon after the percieved infringement as possible.
