I'm the Grumpy Old Ape sometimes answering C++ questions on Stackoverflow.
Usually you will find me in the C++ Lounge of the Stack Overflow chat.

I occasionally retweet something on my Twitter account, and I'm known to even generate my own tweets once in a while.

comment When my 4 yo has to do something he doesn't want to, he moans/cries/wails and communication is blocked. How can I get him to respond?
@Torben: I also try to mostly work with natural consequences. They are great, because they take away the blame from you for educating your child, and help a child to learn that disregarding the council of elders might have dire consequences.

@Ida: Yes, IME going away and disregarding a child is a pretty good way to deal with unwanted behavior! Small children totally depend on the attention of adults and therefore instinctively do not want to be left alone, to be without attention. If you are consequently disregarding a child that behaves in a way you disapprove, there's not even a need to scold: because the way for the child to get what it needs (attention, praise, security, comfort) is to behave the way it's expected to, and not behave "badly".

comment how can I train my 10years old nephew to be responsible
Why isn't he responsible? Why isn't he interested in school? Why is he disregarding elders?

comment Is my 14 year step daughter a bad influence on my children?
As so often, I believe the key to this to be the simple question Why is she acting this way? Does she want to hurt you? Shame her father? Break free of restrictions she doesn't care about? In order to really solve this problem, you will have to find an answer to this question, because the proper solution depends on it.

Why do you post your own summary, when Mike gave such a good answer? Why don't you just accept his instead?

comment Why am I sleep deprived?
"Sleep when your babies sleep." +1 from me to this. Rule No.1 for young parents: When your children sleep, so do you. No matter when and where, and no matter what's on your list, you drop down and nap until a child wakes you. Because, when your children are awake, so are you.
