Do you think it's okay to beat your kids if they misbehave? Some people over do it.

parents should balance there love & punishments for the Kid.. because too much love can spoil them & too much hitting or scolding can make them go evil.

It depends on the circumstances. If they are very young, you could beat them to make them feel that their actions were wrong and while beating don't hit them too much as to hurt or wound them because it really could be abuse. But it is absolutely wrong to hit teenagers. A word of advice borne from a genuine motive will do.

If the time arises for a good old azz whopping then yes. I don't find talking over and over a big help. Kids should not be abused . They also need just enough of a firm hand to know you mean business.

Hitting kids makes them stubborn. It is better to tackle them patiently and should be directed towards a more positive attitude.
