Is it a cultural thing getting smacked?

The Indo has a controversial article that Smacked children more successful later in life. I am no stranger to a smack or a wee bit of caning when I was really young, but that stopped pretty much as soon as I started school. It's like respect my "authorata" (so said by Cartman in Southpark). I don't really count that as abuse, it's not everyday or being punched or anything like that. I think I turned out okay, I don't smoke or hang out with the wrong crowd. Is this a cultural thing? All this just reminds me of the Canadian comedian, Russell Peters, on his skit about getting hit, check it out (I know many Asians can relate to this, enjoy):
