A recent study has revealed  that it does no good in trying to discipline children below the age of two by spanking them as they may not have any idea about discipline or behavior .

Beating children below two years may also hamper their cognitive development, researchers said.

"Early spanking has been shown to be associated with poor cognitive development in early childhood. Further, early trauma has been shown to have significant effects on the early developing brain. It is therefore critical that health and human services professionals address the risk of corporal punishment as a method of discipline early in the life of the child. The spanking of very young children may be an appropriate locus for policy and legislative debates regarding corporal punishment," researchers said.
