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.

Thanks you all for the suggestions! I could only pick one as the "correct" answer, but they're all very useful!

+1 for a noisemaker. We found out by coincidence that our son sleeps much better when he can hear that it's raining outside. So we have a device to play just that, and it seems to help him sleep both deeper and longer.

This doesn't answer the question. I'll remove my downvote if you edit your answer to address the "how" of the question.

comment How can we potty-train our pre-schooler outside the home?
So it might not (only) be the toys. I added a third solution suggestion.

comment How do we get our toddler to gain weight?
I agree with Lennart, but the answer opens the idea to look for similar products in the reader's area.

comment What should you do after you've raised your voice at your child?
You might want to edit your answer to integrate all the great comments. It would make your question carry more value, and be easier for latecomers to handle.
