    Parents should discipline their kids otherwise kids would sit on their parents' nerves.

    Managing conflict is a learned skill, and kids can learn from observing their parents sort out disagreements between them, as well as model apologies and forgiveness.

    But that's presuming the parents are settling disagreements in a healthy, productive way, and that the subject being argued is okay for the kids to know about. A couple should not, for example, argue about their sex life in front of kids, or over allegations of cheating, drug or alcohol abuse, or other serious problems that may not be appropriate for a child to be exposed to.

    Present...never fight with the children present.  Arguing with your kids is a part of life.  It is part of a healthy relationship

    They should be mature enough to discuss a situation at a different time or spot...

    Not necessarily, I think knowing how to argue effectively is an important skill and there are going to be times that parents and children disagree. Now, fight as in a knock down, drag out, people getting hurt... no, that's not a family activity. However, allowing children to voice their own opinions and desires and then also expecting them to listen to the parents point of view is called collaborative problem solving and is a great skill to learn.

    Yes. Discipline should keep kids in place but when they get older, sensible arguments can be healthy. Fighting however should have no place within a family.

    You have that backwards, children should never fight or argue with their parents. Parents should never let their non-adult children fight and argue with them.
