First, you are threatening a child, which makes them fearful of you.
Second, the threat is usually not something that is feasible to do (we are going home, you are going straight to bed, you don’t get dinner, you are grounded for a week, etc.) What we say in frustration is not only impractical but easily forgettable. You can train yourself to be clear and concise, using choices.

A kid can sit down on a chair facing the back, and we make them turn around.
Telling a child that they can’t do something makes them prove that they can, by telling you or showing you that it is in fact possible.
If a child gets hurt because they were doing something dangerous or inappropriate, they already learned their lesson.
