I believe it should, but there is a limit. Anything that seems too harsh whereby you embarrass the child, or hurt them severely I see as excessive. Coming from a child who was spanked, it worked on me, but I vividly remember snapping when my father started being excessive and using items such as a belt and wooden spoon to hit me with. I don't see that as okay, not in the slightest. If you can't get the message through with your hand, find another way.
