No, it's not ok. But if/when it happens, it is a good learning opportunity of what NOT to do to others. "How did you feel.when ------ hit you? You don't want to make others feel that way, so you shouldn't do that to anyone else."

I use this kind of dialogue with my kids all the time for everything from hitting to being bossy to not's just putting yourself in someone else's shoes. Otherwise know as empathy.
