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.

@Hairy did you mean to say "mistake"? Or what did you mean?

comment Should I stop my infant from sucking his thumb?
Yes, there's a question about how to quit thumbsucking but that is already linked in the question though.

comment What methods are effective for teaching vocabulary to young children?
The question indicates it's an infant or toddler. Still, for older kids, reading comics is great advice!

comment Is my infant boy's scrotum too large?
Corvus, you seem to be repeating yourself in your various answers. Your philosophy is all right, but I think your answers would be more useful if you focused them on how your philosophy translates into actual, useful advice to the specific situation.

comment How do you discipline someone else's child?
+1 for seeing the child as merely the symptom while the actual problem seems to be the adult. Good luck Cheryl!

Thanks for great background info on teething - I couldn't have phrased it so well.
