  • Yes I do and around 2 1/2 or 3.

    I don't do it often and get no enjoyment out of it. When it needs to be done, it needs to be done.

  • I do too. But I have seen some people who only use spankings and their kids wont listen to anyone unless they are getting the crap beat out of them, so I use it sparingly. We also started a bit before 2 years old.
