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 TV shows are wholesome for primary-schoolers?
"being on" - do you mean TV shows that are currently showing where you live? Where is that? Questions (and answers) should be useful for the majority of the audience, and should remain valid over time, so limiting to a time and an area makes the question somewhat less useful.

comment How can I stop my two year old from taking off his diaper in bed?
+1 for the sleeping bag, but my "little monkey" can climb and walk around even when he's in it! I'm wondering whether he's got some levitation trick going. (Where's Charles Xavier when you need him?)

comment How can I mount a gate at the top post of my stairs?
Sorry, I don't know any kits. Take some measurements and photos, then go to your local DYI store and ask for help.

comment Is it dangerous for a child to sleep with the head hanging?
True - what happens if you sleep with the head on one side everyday is that the muscles and tendons on one side become shorter than those on the other side. Luckily the therapy is quite simple and painless - just bothersome.

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