How come hitting your child give you a good feeling toward the aspect of discipline and structure?

Physical abuse will cause your child to suffer from low self-esteem and become fearful of those who around him. There is no learning in discipline for the child in physical abuse. The one who abuses the child only wants the child to submit to his will. He does not acknowledge the child as a person. He only makes up an excuse for his outrageous act as teaching the child discipline.
The concerned mother was worried about the father constantly hit his son without any good reason. The only reason she got was he wanted to teach him a lesson — with pinch and slap.
First off, what is wrong with him? May be slapping and pinching is the new commodity for communicating with you son.
I’m a cold-hearted father when it comes to discipline: I pinch my son and my daughter; I also yelled at them with high voice of thunder when they do something that terribly wrong or refuse to follow instruction. But it is so surprising that this father hit his son out of nothing like Touch N Go card.
I hope I will not be like this man.
