Huff Po – A Minnesota man has been arrested after allegedly pointing an AK-47 rifle at his daughter during an argument stemming from her getting two B’s — instead of straight A’s — on her report card. Kirill Bartashevitch, 51, had recently purchased the gun because he was afraid that President Obama’s push for gun control legislation would lead to a ban on those kinds of weapons, according to a criminal complaint obtained by WCCO. Bartashevitch and his 15-year-old daughter were arguing about her grades on Jan. 13 in their St. Paul home, the complaint states. When he swore at the girl over her lack of straight A’s, she told him she hated him, which led to him allegedly pointing the rifle at her. The daughter was taken to a shelter, and Bartashevitch was charged with two counts of terroristic threats.
There’s 2 ways to raise kids – positive reinforcement and negative reinforcement. Positive reinforcement is like “If you get an A+, I’ll buy you a toy!” You know what positive reinforcement gets you? A bunch of fucking B’s and a spoiled kid. Negative reinforcement is like “If you don’t get an A+, I’m gonna shoot you with my AK-47.” You know what negative reinforcement gets you? Its probably gonna get you some fucking A+’s. At the very least it gets you a daughter who knows not to come home with B’s, one way or the other. Of course then again you run the risk of being labeled a domestic terrorist and your daughter goes to live in a shelter and eventually drops out of school all together and she becomes a drug addicted prostitute. But there’s also a chance your daughter just gets straight A’s next semester and you don’t have to buy any toys at all.
