This is my own educated, researched response to those who would choose to use the Bible as an excuse to beat a child. I dug out my dusty Bible, and I began to read. I'm sure I will find more, but I find NO WHERE in there where it says to beat the child...
If you choose to reference what I have quoted, the Bible, Contemporary English Version 1995
Holy Bible, Contemporary English Version, hc, 1995

Ephesians 6.4 Parents don't be hard on your children. Raise them properly. Teach them and instruct them about the lord

Colossians 3.21 Parents, don't be hard on your children. If you are, they might give up.

Proverbs 22.6 Teach your children right from wrong and when they grow they will still do right

Proverbs 24.3 Use wisdom and understanding to establish your home; let good sense fill the rooms
with priceless treasures

Matthew 7
1"Do not judge, or you too will be judged. 2For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. 3"Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? 4How can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? 5You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye.

Matthew 7.21
21 ‘Not everyone who says to me, “Lord, Lord”, will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only one
who does the will of my Father in heaven. 22On that day many will say to me, “Lord, Lord, did we
not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many deeds of power in your
name?” 23Then I will declare to them, “I never knew you; go away from me, you evildoers.”

Mark 10.13-16
13 People were bringing little children to him in order that he might touch them; and the disciples spoke sternly to them. 14But when Jesus saw this, he was indignant and said to them, ‘Let the little children come to me; do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs. 15Truly I tell you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will never enter it.’ 16And he took them up in his arms, laid his hands on them, and blessed them.

Not all of this was directly from my particular Bible as it was a LOT of typing, but I cross referenced every excerpt.
