Are you allowed to hit your son or daughter?

NO! Hitting your son, or your daughter, or anyone else is called battery. Battery is a crime in all fifty states and in most other jurisdictions. It is generally chargeable as a felony. Some states carve out exceptions for "corporeal punishment" (i.e. spanking), but in general, it is neither legal, nor acceptable to go around hitting people, especially children, and doing so is an invitation for the department of children's services to visit you regularly. Yes it is OK to spank, or use corporal punishment on your children (my son is a police officer and we have spoken about this MANY times) it is NOT OK to abuse or beat your children!
