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 I assuage my pre-teen's fear of flying
Are you saying that the girl doesn't feel safe in her family? I'm glad to hear from a professional but I have to say that I feel this response is way over the top, suggesting therapy work right off the bat without suggesting or attempting any easier and less drastic alternives first. As a professional, could you give some such alternatives too?

comment Destructive when unattended
What is your reaction when you encounter destruction? What is his reaction to yours? Does this help you identify if there is spite involved, or remorse afterward, or any kind of hostile/moral emotions?

comment From what age is it safe to install a life hammer in my car?
Car windows are safety glass without sharp edges, so "extremely dangerous" is a serious exaggeration. It's no worse than fine gravel. The bell is a nice idea!

comment Writing from the bottom up
@user3143 see this question about Qwerty/Dvorak in which the consensus seems to be that keyboard skills are important but Dvorak is (sadly) not a realistic goal.

comment Is milk powder left in a hot car going to go bad?
This is especially true while the container is unopened, because any humidity in the car could not have affected the contents.

comment 30 year old granddaugter in lesbian relationship and I was told about this by her 5 year old child
I don't see why this got downvoted without reason. At least people should explain why they did so. How else would the asker know how to improve the post?
