My Mood:
I used TO at that age (started around 15 months when her receptive language was sufficient) and it was effective. I never used a timer or TO spot (any boring place will do). I only use TO to interupt the behavior and diffuse the situation...TO is over as soon as DD is calm, quiet and attentive (usually <1min but sometimes more). I go and speak with her, appology, hug and we move on. IMO it is easier to implement TO with a younger child before he/she reaches the defiant "no" phase.
