The Difference Between Threats and Consequences

This is a difficult place and the definitions of these ideas often get wrongly exchanged... So I want to start by breaking them down a bit. Threats are empty and cruel.

There is a difference between natural and logical consequences and we have to be careful not to exchange the word consequence for punishment. Especially when it is handed down out of frustration and anger.
