Healthy interaction...?

Just making sure I'm not going to start any bad behavior/problems when he gets older. (28, Male)

My little kitten (>1 y/o male) is getting older and the past couple of months we have been playing together rather aggressively (sp?). I rough-house with him letting him ALMOST bite me on the hands. I'll let him get a good bite in occasionally (it doesn't hurt me), and he plays with my 1 1/2 year old son without scratching or biting him.

Is it alright (for me) to play fight like another cat with him, or should I just let him interact w/ other cats on his own?

-Or-

Should I try to curb any aggressiveness from the cat.

No, you shouldn't let him bite you like another cat. He needs to learn there's a difference. How to stop it has been repeated here many times. If you use the search function on the keyword "biting" you should find those threads.

If you have a little one you definitely don't want to teach your cat how to bite and fight. It's bad enough if it was just you, but you don't want your child getting a bite, or bad scratch.
