I am sorry but no, I am not doing that to my children, and have them sit here in 20 years time, being upset and reminded about how I hurt them. I love my children, and am there to protect them. They are not objects, and things that are there for me to control. I am here to show them how to become good, loving people. And not that its OK to express your anger with your hands.
Getting their emotions out using crying or talking is more important. If you bottle up anger it can over whelm you and you can take things too far.
