It is a positive Mitzvah to "emulate G-d's ways" (Rambam Deot, 1). To be a better father to my kids, I'm trying to see what educational methods does G-d exercise in the Torah to His sons when they misbehave.
As we can see the Torah testifies that the Jews weren't very obedient, to say the least. And G-d reacted to they misdeeds very promptly. Strangely, it appears to come down to two methods:
G-d gets furious and kills his naughty sons immediately or He tells others (Moses, other nations, plagues) to kill them. E.g. the Golden Calf, Aharon's sons, Korach, Mekoshesh, Bnot Moav, Meraglim, etc.
1.5. G-d gets "less furious" and promises to kill them later - Dor Hamidbar, Moses and Aharon (for Mei Meriva and Golden Calf)
G-d overcomes His anger and postpones killing them or pardons them completely (called mercy) - Golden Calf, Kivrot Teavah etc.
What additional methods of dealing with disobedient sons that I missed does G-d demonstrate in the Torah alone?
