Driving home

what a sitting duck you are is the first step in PTSD, not learning.

Walking someone through an anxiety-ridden, worst case scenario is the stupidest learning mechanism ever, especially for a first exposure. That's a set-back to the learning process, not a way to convince someone to listen better. It trains in failure and anxiety.

The first learning scenarios you should expose someone to are successful scenarios that they have been prepared to succeed in -- setting them up for success. If I gave my kid a chore he's never done and set him up for it to turn out as badly as it possibly could as a strategy to get him to listen more when I teach him the right way, you guys would accuse me of tormenting the kid for jollies because no other explanation would fit.
