Hello Peach,

 I know in China people often use the word "beat", I hope that they usually mean "smack".

 In Western countries, to "beat" someone is a very violent act, and the person who inflicts the beating should probably go to prison/jail.

A "smack" is like a slap to the child's bottom, or outer thigh.

 Actually, many Western countries are making laws against even smacking of your own child. A few countries in Europe have had this policy for many years already, and it seems that their society has benefited from it.

 However, I think in China that that kind of social develoment will take a lot longer.

Best wishes,

 Tim
