ABSOLUTELY NOT !!
No. Beatings usually just teaches kids to be more discreet with doing wrong, as opposed to trying to avoid doing wrong. With the method you described, I'd probably use what I learned from my beating to beat other kids in new ways.

Violence begets violence. If a parent can't teach their child without abusing them they shouldn't be parents.
Hmm, as long as the man teaches him a lesson about treating people how they want to be treated, I'd assume it would work :P
yes, the kid will be scared into submission.
