I thought that smacking your child on the back of the hand and saying "No" firmly was effective. Why are people telling me on CM that this is a bad thing to do?
Are time-outs better? And do you think my 1 year old will understand what time-out is?

time out is too complicated for a one year old
a firm no and / or redirection is age appropriate
in my opinion

I only smack my son's hand (he's almost 16 months) if he goes to touch something dangerous. It's not a punishment but simply to get his attention. Then I just put somewhere else and give him something else to occupy him. At his age there is not really any discipline needed because they don't know right from wrong. They're just curious and unaware of danger.
