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 do you tell if a toddler is lactose intolerant?
Have you asked your pediatrician explicitly about lactose intolerance? What was the response?

comment What constitutes verbal abuse of one's child?
I would think though that if the normal days are filled with yelling --even if not designed to hurt-- would still affect a child's social abilities as compared to growing up in a soft-spoken household. This must not necessarily be in a negative way, but to me it would seem likely.

comment What constitutes verbal abuse of one's child?
+1 for emphasizing the intent of the yelling. I think that is spot on.

comment What are some good strategies for preventing Diaper Rash?
I've turned your question into a wiki now. Please edit your post: the two points you list would make great contributions as two separate answers. I think the above two comments would be good real answers, too.

comment At what age is it appropriate to bring my children to an (Italian) opera?
I know it's not opera, but how about Shakespeare? Plays like A Midsummer Night's Dream should be pretty accessible - and even exist in "modern" versions - Romeo and Juliet, too.

comment How does one formally educate a gifted child without wrecking childhood?
Your answer seems pretty much unfounded itself, especially toward the end. Can you point to sources that back it up?

comment How long should I wait before I permit my children to have access to caffeine?
+1 ... and a great answer
