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.

comment How can we improve a trilingual toddler's basic language development?
@Lennart I wouldn't put much credibility in the statement that all single language kids should be able to say a few words at 12 months. That just puts undue pressure on the parents. My bilingual son is 20 month now and doesn't say real words yet, but I'm not worried. It'll come soon enough.

comment How should we address stuttering in a toddler?
feels like his mouth can't keep up with this brain is an interesting observation that makes me think it might really be the case, and not actual stuttering. If so, I wonder if training patience and concentration could help.

comment What is the best type of milk for a toddler?
You're welcome to mention the brand and the specific product. You're only required to disclose if it's your own company, and even that is allowed except if the primary goal is self-marketing.

How many 18-month-old do you know that can count to 20?

No problem. When writing an answer, there's a link on the right-hand side to the formatting help and editing help.

comment How can we prepare a pre-schooler to manage his asthma?
Intriguing about breathing out. Could you elaborate on what you mean by a panic button? I guess you don't mean this.
