Hello, world!

I'm a father of one pre-schooler and one toddler. My stake in this site is to learn from you, and also to contribute as much as I can!

Based on my own childhood and parenthood, my specialties are (among others): twins, languages, and international aspects. For the record, I'm an identical twin and married to a fraternal twin. I speak 4 languages fluently and I've lived in 5 countries (Europe, Japan).

I enjoy using my experience to help others. That is why I am active at even more SE sites in the StackExchange network on topics that interest me.

valuable flair!

Outside of this site, I'm something of a Swiss army knife both professionally and in private, able to juggle a wild variety of things at once. I've worked in every kind of business that uses software. I'm also very good with tools, both IT and mechanic. Whether you need software design or assembling some IKEA furniture, I'm your man for the job. I'm generally soft-spoken but driven by clear principles.

To learn more about me, see my Google+ profile.

Welcome! Vague posts like yours (no offense!) usually don't get very useful responses here. What's your actual question? - This site works best when we can give one clear answer to one clear question. If you have several questions, post them separately.

comment How do you pronounce Maya and Lucia?
@tobyink there are lots of variations, see this list for instance. That's why I suggest asking the parents! :-)

comment My Niece is treated as an Outcast by her own Parents
Of course kids can be aroused, why shouldn't that be possible? The kids are exploring - that's a very natural thing in some cultures but even there it can exasperate the parents because they see it with adult eyes. Please see this relevant question and its answers!

I can't tell whether you're serious or this is tongue-in-cheek. But the bright light of a TV (specifically the blue component) isn't conducive to sleep.
