Saved from the web by a job in industry. Coding GUI for computer-aided railway realignment machinery.

At last a job where I have time to do stuff properly and don't have to worry about loads of unfixed bugs coming back to haunt me.

comment Should I make my child respond to me in my language?
My youngest says she doesn't want to talk English, but the other day I honestly didn't understand what she was trying to say in French, and she just trotted it out in English, which was reassuring. You could try to augment the exposure by only allowing TV in Danish :)

comment Can a son share a bed with his girlfriend, at 27?
"I'm unsure of the origin of their concerns." Why? The fact that you're coming here and asking us instead of asking them seems a bit weird to me, especially in the context of an "otherwise happy relationship." To be honest, without knowing what is motivating them, I don't feel there's much that we can do here except speculate.

I'm guessing 'financial problems' might preclude the hotel option.

comment How do I tell my mom that I am not Christian?
Leaving this as a comment as it doesn't really answer your question, but please consider that even though you may feel 'finished' and certain about your orientations, a lot of things can still happen which may change them in the next 15-or-so years...

comment No BM control; what does this mean for training?
Our daughters both went through a phase of wanting to examine their 'productions', and being the ones to 'pull the chain'.

comment How do I deal with my pre-schooler's over tired behavior after school?
@morahhochman, I'd say that for a 4 year-old, your problem is right there staring you in the eyes...

comment How do I prevent my child from becoming frightened by “scary” stories?
That's me, 6-7 years old, hiding behind the sofa, listening to the Doctor Who theme tune (that alone gave me the willies!)

comment Resources for helping children understand that TV/Films aren't necessarily “real”
Good idea, I had also thought of something like this (it will be Paint.NET).

comment Resources for helping children understand that TV/Films aren't necessarily “real”
Good idea. Maybe it's age, but I increasingly find that the "Making of"'s are more interesting than the actual film. I'd pay money to go and see a feature-length "making of Avatar".

comment Is it normal for a six year old to say he's fallen in love?
Yeah, I'd call it a crush and encourage the child not to confuse a crush with 'real' love.

comment How to better engage myself with my 15 month old
I don't understand the question: you want him to be engaged with you, you want to engage with him, or you want him to occupy himself with toys?

comment What are the differences between a child who was born vaginally versus via caesarean section?
@TorbenGundtofte-Bruun, I think he was implying that men's resistance to pain is vastly inferior to women's, though that's probably a question for skeptics.SE...
