WE HAVE A WINNER!

That doesn't work with every kid. Not all 3 yo are mature enough to fully understand cause and effect.

This.
Our 20 month daughter is a massive handful at mass, and a smack will only make things worse for the rest of the parishioners. At this age they're just too young to understand why or how to be quiet for more than 3 minutes. I don't pretend to have any surefire answers (my wife and I struggle with this issue on a weekly basis), but I think setting a good example and a regular attendance at mass from as early an age as possible (and as some have suggested, during the week if possible) is the way to go.
