I spanked when they were completely insubordinate, for instance if I put them on a chair for time out and they didn't stay there, I smacked their butt once pretty hard, got their attention, and then they straightened right up. You don't have to do very often at all once they know you will.

I never did.  My son is 9 - definitely too old IMO.  

As far as age and reason - it is really child specific.  I'm sure some children under some circumstances really need to be spanked.  Others never need a spanking under any circumstance.

 My children get hit when they hit, that's the rule, "If you don't want to be hit, then don't hit!"!  The age doesn't matter and this method works for us.

I only spank when it is absolutely necessary (doing something dangerous, total defiance, etc).

Yes, that is my thought on it. When she knows the rule, and does what she wants anyway. Especially when it has to do with safety issues. If she does something that she knows is not allowed or that could get her killed, she will most likely get a swat. I have not had to do it very often, only when it is a pretty dire situation or blatant insubordination. It does become a deterrent. OP I've only started it since she turned two and decided she could do her own thing. Prior to that I used redirection.


Quoting Lindalou907:

Always a last resort for me, and I don't believe it's ever really necessary
