Do you beat kids?

I'm not sure if hittting kids is necessary to mould them correctly. My mom always beats us when we were kids and still believes. My kids are 4 years old and never obey us until we scare them with a stick though I don't beat them as such. But by the time I make them do something, my heart almost pops out. I have tried timeout methods too but it doesn't work always. So is beating a better way?

Honestly, I don't think that beating is the best solution. I have kids too, 5 1/2, 4, and 2 1/2. Yes, they will misbehave, but beating them has never been a good solution, in my opinion. I don't think they learn anything from it. It's better to just try and talk to them. It's not always easy, but eventually we do get through to them. This is what works for us. But each child is different. Maybe you can try and find a way that works for you. If timeouts don't work, then try and think of something else that may work for your kids.

Not all the time. I understand raising kids is not easy and some times we need to hit them to scare or to teach them. As a parent ,it hurt us more each time we hit or beat our kids, but it doesn't stop them for being stubborn, kids are kids anyway. I don't beat my kids when they were small, I hit them though with a slipper or soft things. But talking to them and explaining works best.
