My wife and I operate on the principle that a parents job is to make sure that the child has plenty of things to talk about with their analyst later in life. We even identify the event for easy recollection as it is happening.

My son was cutting corners on watering our horses so I told him he had to eat his dinner without anything to drink. It worked like a charm. He was not even thirsty until I told him he could not have a drink with his meal.

In your case it will be like this..."My dad made me wear a dog collar that shocked me when I got too close to the Porsche, that is why I have an irrational fear of all things German".

Who said parenting was hard?
