The closest wording I could find in Musannaf Abd al-Razzaq is:

علقوا السوط حيث يراها أهل البيت

Hang your whip where it can be seen by the members of your household

مصنف عبد الرزاق

There is dispute concerning its authenticy, some considered at least one of its chains to be Hasan while others consider them all to be Da'if. Refer to Islamweb:

As for the second Hadeeth which is the saying of the Prophet, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam: “Hang your whip where the members of your household can see it.” [At-Tabaraani in Al-Mu‘jam], some scholars deemed it weak while some others deemed it Hasan [good].

Also see for example number 431 in الأحاديث المشتهرة الضعيفة and number 1446 and 1447 in سلسلة الصحيحة.
