So I know lots of people have lots of different words for punishments or discipline or whatever. But basically whenever LO is doing something they know they shouldn't be doing and something has be done to teach them not to do that anymore, whatever you want to call that, when do you start doing that?
DD is almost a year old and I know that she 100% knows what 'no' and 'stop' means. She knows when she is doing something she isn't supposed to do. Since she is still a baby of course we do redirecting and pretty much just removing her from the situation, and saying stuff like, "No, we don't hit the kitty. That hurts." You know, to explain it to her or whatever. Which is fine for now. But when do you move on from that? We aren't 100% sure what to do, we are kind of discussing things together right now about what to do when that time comes.
At her daycare they pretty much do this until they are at age 3 and then they do 'time out' where they make the kid sit in the corner or whatever. Until age 3 its all redirecting. Which is fine with me still but I'm just wondering what you guys do. Some of my family heard that and they were like, "3 years old! That's a little old don't you think?" And I just didn't know what to say. Then again I come from a long line of spankers so I don't know.
What do you think?
