In my day, it was fear of Dad's wrath.

Getting an F? "Son, this is going to hurt me more than it hurts you."

Got paddled at school? "Son, this is going to hurt me more than it hurts you."

Talked back to a teacher? "Son, this is going to hurt me more than it hurts you."

etc.
The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.
