Not really; most teenagers of course are too old for smacks, but they are in no way on an equal footing with adults. I'd say that children shouldn't be smacked after the age of eight, but of course, it depends on how mature the child is. Once a child responds to reason, use that instead. And a smack should just be a smack with the hand, no objects involved, and used as a punishment for terrible behaviour not for every crime.
