Hubby and i have a nine month old little girl. She will be ten months in about a week. Hubby told me he wants to say no when she does something wrong (Which we already do) and then if she does it again, slap or tap her hand.
Ive been leary of this, so last night we discussed it. I said that i felt while she understands when i say no sometimes, she doesnt understand all the time. Actually she only seems to understand when i say no, not everyone else, maybe cause she is with me all the time.
So i felt that we should slap/tap her hand until we are certain that she understands what no means. He agreed and we decided not to slap her hand right now.
I just want to know what everyone else thinks about this.

I'm not against spankings (on the bottom), but I can tell you I don't agree with slapping a child hand, I think that anything other then a swat on the bottom is wrong, with ONE exception.
The one exception is this: The ONLY time I've ever slapped my child's hand is when they have reached for the stove/oven... If they reached for the stove/oven I would tell them NO, HOT and slap their hand. I figured it was better for them to get a slap on the hand by me then to get burned....They learned quickly then that the stove/oven was something to stay away from.
Everyone has different discipline styles....
