Hayley Ann Kirman
This is a running account (in reverse order) of Hayley's life, seen
sometimes from the perspective of a doting father, sometimes from the
perspective of an artificial intelligence researcher, and sometimes from
the perspective of a dabbler in cognitive science and developmental
psychology. Several people have said it was interesting enough to
warrant being made more public, so I have tentatively added a few links
to it from fairly public places. If you find any of this interesting,
I'd love to hear from you: email firstname.lastname@example.org. Now that
Hayley is getting a bit older there are parts of the diary that I am
keeping private, but may put back much later. Keeping this diary up
to date will help prove to myself that I am doing at least a decent
job as a father.
Recommendations for software for children, and a very simple drawing
program I wrote for young children.
The books we have found Hayley likes most, the books I liked most as a
child, and some recommendations by other people.
The videos Hayley likes most.
Other people's stories.
The home-made and purchased devices we have found most effective.
Hayley's height and weight, 5, 25, 50, 75 and 95 percentiles.
Various bits of information, suggestions, questions.
The NoSpan King Page
has many excellent articles on discipline, children, violence and
related topics. I assume the name is derived from Nosmo King :-)
