Caleb just turned a year and I totally know it's a little early for discipline. He knows the word 'no' and it breaks his heart when I have to say it. You'd think the world was coming to an end

When is the best time to do full, hands-on discipline.

Two-ish or so?

Well, I think discipline is something that starts when they are young. Timeouts are tough for 1 year olds because many of them don't understand the concept. I personally never had to spank Marshall at 1. At 1, I think the discipline that worked for us was talking to him about what he did wrong and starting the timeout concept, but using only in rare circumstances. Once in a while we would spank his hand. You do have to keep on the discipline from the 1-2 year timeframe just so they know the boundries.

My youngest is 2 and we started at 18months. She's a very *spirited* child to be polite so a swat on the hand worked for us when telling her no didn't.

Between 1 and 2 I used "NO!" and redirection, slapping his hand when he would do something dangerous, and occasionally putting him in the crib or playpen for quiet time when he threw a tantrum.
