    How about when the parent is about to give the child a spanking and says "This is going to hurt me much more than it hurts you." I used to get that when I was bad as a kid.

    No, my parents were always pretty clear that I was going to be the one worse off, and I suspect a couple of times they enjoyed it.

    Eh, maybe so. Being raised in a LEO type family my parents were deeply saddened that they had to resort to a little physical violence, ie spankings on the butt with the palm of the hand, to get the point across that what I had done or didn't do was wrong.
