I know this subject can become very heated, but I was wondering when everyone started spanking their children, hand only, I think anything further is child abuse. My son turned one Christmas Eve. Our biggest fight is when we tell him no, he looks right at us and continues to do it. We swat his hands and it deters him for only a minute. He will walk back over to whatever he was told not to mess with and get our attention and start doing what he was told not to again. I didn't know if there was a set age (that sounds kinda of silly) or if it was just when he could comprehend that he is doing something wrong.
