If i have to tell them to stop more than 3 times, I put them in time out and take away toys, games etc. If it continues, i spank.

I spanked DS for the first time the other day, he's two. He had been hitting his sister because she would not give him a toy he wanted and I had redirected, had him be gentle, told him no, made him apologize and had him in timeout several times and he would not stop, then he pulled a huge handful of her hair out so I spanked his butt and put him in timeout again. I use it only as a last resort with DD too (it doesn't phase her anyways) I shouldn't have spanked him though because he didn't understand, he seemed confused when I did it. I felt bad but he was being awful to his sister and I wasn't going to have him act like that. He didn't do it anymore though.

I've been following the other thread and I really just can not fathom a reason.

2 or 3. Not exactly sure. More than likely two though when the terrible twos started and they could understand no and stop.

Its not mainly offenses its when I've asked her to stop or told her no or not to do something more than a couple times. She typically doesn't go that far and the only time I ever really have to give her a spanking is after she goes in time out and she starts screaming bloody murder or hitting the walls. The one major offense is when she hurts someone else purposefully or does something that could endanger herself or someone else.

Right around his 3rd birthday when he started his independent phase and refused to hold my hand.
