He hit me many times.
I not letting him to drink milk unless he confess he was wrong.

I asked him to say, "Dad, I was wrong. Please forgive me, never again."

Does it sound natural?

Since the child is small and apparently can't speak complex sentences, I suggest the following sentence:

- Dad, I was wrong. Please forgive me. I'll never hit you again.

===================

Try this as well:

I would not let him drink milk until he confessed that he was wrong.

You might just ask him to say "Sorry, Daddy", rather than learn a whole complex speech.
He's just learning the first basics of English.
