I assume you mean "hit their child?" No, not always. I do believe in spanking, but it should be reserved for serious misbehavior!! An occasional spanking when it is truly deserved will not harm a child and lets them know where their limits are. You don't have to spank them all the time, or even often. They just need to know you will if it is called for. That is usually enough to keep them in line.
