We use the spanking method, though sometimes i feel like it might be too much, we have done it for a couple yrs now so it has developed into the way our child is handled. I tried doing other things but nothing else works. Good old fashioned spankins seem to be the only choice. I always try to do it as the last resort but he just doesnt listen so usually i have to stay on top of it? at what age does it get better, with their listening and cooperating skills? horrible twos and terrrrribbble 3s here!Answer Question

Even though you posted this as for spankers, non spankers will be here soon enough to bash the hell out of anyone who has chosen to spank, lol. Mine are 5, 3, 18 months, and another due next month. I am a FIRM believer in spanking. I definitely found that staying on top of it was the way to go. I think it's confusing for them to get spanked one day for something and the next day not get spanked for the same thing. Eventually, they get it. Just here recently my 5 year old has had a serious break through in communication and it's worked WONDERS. No more spanking! WHOO HOO~

With my 3 year old, I have been very firm but noticed as she's developing into her own person that she isn't like my son and responds MUCH easier to very low talking. I am big on respect and it seems she is following suit. Get loud and ask her to do something, she'll just stare. Ask her nicely to do something, she'll immediately do it. So spankings aren't necessary for her.
