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 Reading in second language for a bilingual kid - how to approach a phonetic language vs. English phonics?
No need to apologize. We've all been new here. I see you already found out how to edit an existing post. Add the "http://" in front of "www" and it becomes a link automagically.

When you link to your blog, can you please link directly to a relevant post? As it is, I'd have to go hunt for something related to this answer, and I didn't find anything, so it's not very helpful to the community.

comment How can my son learn to use the bicycle's pedals?
This sounds like a great method. I added some formatting, it looked like you intended that.

comment What to do if my new-born child urinated into own ear?
You're talking about a newborn -- it's too early to train much at that age.

Same here. Still working on a solution. Seems to be a universal issue.
