comment What age to teach a child about fairness?
It seems like you're really asking "What's an appropriate age to teach kids that the world is not always fair?" which may well be a very different answer than "What age is appropriate to teach the value of fairness in our interactions with others." Didn't want to edit your title in case I'm misrepresenting, tho...

comment Does good cop/bad cop work with children?
Great answers below - one simple test I'd toss in is this: Would you be proud if your child chose to emulate your behavior as their primary way of handling similar situations? If the answer is no, you probably want to look for other approaches when possible - the most important outcome here isn't how they respond to this situation; it's how they learn situations should be handled for the rest of their lives.

comment What is a healthy, ethical way to deal with a nanny cam?
@woliveirajr, do you mean legally? I know the facts from a legal perspective. I'm interested in the ethical aspects, which only seem location specific if there are different social norms?
