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 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!

I can't find the "answer" in your answer. Could you perhaps revise the post to be clearer?

comment What should we pack when going camping with an infant?
I'd +1 this except for the floatation vest - IMHO those should only be used by persons who can swim...

comment What should we pack when going camping with an infant?
+1 for encouraging the parent to learn to swim, and for suggesting a sensible baby life jacket!

comment How can a young child be taught not to bully?
-1: oh yes you do have the position to act when the other child sits on your child. if someone is doing my son wrong then that automatically grants me the permission to iterfere. Especially if it's a relative; it's much easier to talk to his parents about a coordinated effort and reaction than it would be with strangers at the park.
