Violence should not be used on teenagers , no matter how much he or she deserves it. I think it’s considered child abuse. Also, it’s just going to make him or her more angry and next time, he or she’s going to want to do something worse. It’s all a helpless, endless cycle. You need to talk to him or her, tell him or her what she’s doing is wrong, and maybe takehim or her to a therapist if he or she seems to be misbehaving badly.
