comment Is it ok to disagree in front of the kids?
"breaking any law is unacceptable": why? I'd understand that some principles are not arguable, but laws? Not a lawyer but I suspect I break "laws" every day.

comment Should I let my baby play with oranges?
We are talking about little children here. Resolving disagreements can be educative for 15 years old, but I would avoid it below 5.

comment My son 1 year slaps me and people on their face
Why limit this to physical violence? In fact many bad behaviors are not physical but can be worse, no? For me a lie resulting in someone else being punished or in trouble is worse, for example.

"needs to understand why it's wrong": this has it's limits, sometime it's wrong, and there is no "why". If you think carefully, not peeing on your neighbour's flowers is wrong, but there is no reason for it to be wrong.

comment Loud Screaming to attract attention
Thanks @monsto you understand me. There was no danger at all, just normal baby cries, the meaning was clearly "I want Mama near me NOW!". About, "better not let her win", what I mean is that it is better if both the parents and the baby know (by experience) that parents will not bend if they do not want to. With my 4yo boy I let him bend me to his wills very often, and do it light-hearted, because we both know I will not bend if i do not want to (e.g. if I think there is some danger, or he is trespassing some red line).

Yes, "forced", because she was loosing her self-control. She agreed with me before that we had to do this. But with her baby crying she was not herself anymore so i had to "force" a bit. I was crying inside too, mind you, but sometime you shan't hear this inside voice.

@balancedmama it depends, not for hours obviously but the important point is to show the kid you are a loving partent, not a kind of "come here immediately" slave. Same idea as answer by Rory Alsop.

comment How to Teach That Following Rules is Not Always Good?
Learning how, why and when to break the rules is as important as learn how, why and when to follow them, and home is the best place to learn that skill. I'd say well-behaved kids are those who know to do both well. (Maybe it is a French specifics, but here in France you see rule-breaking everywhere, always in the name of principles.)
