Different kids need different inputs.

My daughter (4) can be brought to tears with a stern look.

My son (2) openly laughs like the little cutie he is at the stern look, laughs harder at a raised voice, but snaps to attention with a little swat.

In most cases, disappointment and timeout are sufficient for both.

I'd pull my kids from any school that practiced corporal punishment, not that there would be any chance they'd be subject to it.
