I kinda want to bring back public punishment too, since visiting Singapore and seeing how beautiful it is.

I think it's acceptable, but only in extreme situations like if they annoy me a little bit

it's not good as a punishment, but it shouldn't be banned because it's a safety measure. a young child doing something dangerous like throwing pencils at other kids needs to have that behaviour ended immediately before an injury occurs, and a quick rap is the only thing that does that. when they're having a great time slinging sharp objects (or insert anything else that's awesome fun for little kids but can result in injury or death) they're not going to respond to reasoned arguments and there's no time for them in those situations anyway.
