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.

Well, one could say that you maintain your balance by steering ... but okay.

comment What games are good for teaching math?
I'm wondering if this question would be better placed at math.stackexchange.com, but I'm not sure it fits there (their FAQ is not clear about teacher questions).

comment Should we use a smiley chart to reward/punish our toddler?
@Hendy it sounds like you're drifting offtopic. If you want to discuss chart elements, please open a new question or talk in the chat room.

comment Should we use a smiley chart to reward/punish our toddler?
@Hendy I think you're right insofar that "Good girl" works in the immediate moment and is something the nanny can use - but it's not what the question is about. It's about some kind of report or feedback over a time period. The smiley chart in question is intended for "saving up" for rewards, or for an end-of-day report from the nanny to the parents.

How I found your blog? Your question contains a link :-) Seeing that your marriage is a lot more internally opposed than mine, I'm sure it's going to be a bigger challenge for you than for me. Make sure to decide for yourself which battles are worth fighting.
