We do it a bit younger for different types of situations. I pretty much agree with Frelle and Lilly though.

We have spanked younger for things like trying to touch the stove or trying to play with an electrical outlet. That has been about 14-15mths and redirection didn't work. They just kept going back.

Other than that it has been about 18mths with us. That is just when our boys seem to "get" and/or need the beginnings of that discipline. My eldest son (5) has had his mouth swatted before for his mouthy attitude (talking back, yelling at us, screaming fits, etc.). But mostly it is on his rear-end. And yes, they have cried. Typically because they know that they are in trouble!
