I think its ok and normal to disagree and discuss something in front of kids, however, yelling, sreaming, cursing etc in front of kids is very wrong IMO.

I guess it depends on what you consider a fight to be.

Arguments happen, and I think that it's important for children to learn how to handle themselves and behave appropriately when confronted with them. So for instance, if there is a disagreement over who is going to go to the store, it wouldn't be the worst thing for children to see their parents work through a minor disagreement reasonably.

I don't, however, think heated arguments or worse should take place in front the the children. Raised voices upset, confuse and anger children. It also teaches them that kind of behavior is acceptable. A lot of things said in the heat of the moment are intended to be hurtful, and I don't think children should have to witness stuff like that.

I also think a subject about the kids or the child shouldn't be discussed in front of them.

I agree with the above--small disagreements about "small things" should be handled in front of the kids sometimes so they can learn conflict resolution and stuff like that. Issues about the kids, other family members or other "big things" should be handled in private.

I agree as long as it's not something about parenting the kids. Never let them know you are divided on a parenting issue. I think it's healthy for them to see you disagree and then work through it.
