New Comic-Con in Buffalo, New York – #nickelcitycon

Dave and Adam’s Card World is doing a first in Western New York, bringing its’ own Comic Con to the Buffalo area! From the looks of it, it has a lot of star power and the potential to really attract more in the future! Years ago, being a nerd or a Geek was something that everyone made fun of. Today, it’s almost mainstream! It’s great to see people able to feel comfortable, being themselves. Comic Conventions are the mecca of exactly that; being yourself.

Raising Little Geeks – Geek Dad #howtodad #starwars

Being a Geek Dad is not about finding ways to get your kids to enjoy “Geekdom”. It’s about finding ways to let your kids enjoy what THEY like and seeing that there is a bit of Geek in everyone. It’s about encouraging your children to not be embarrassed over liking Star Trek, Superheros, knitting or coloring. It’s about showing them that it’s OK to not like what everyone else does, or vice versa.
We constantly here that the ‘world’ wants kids to grow up confident, as good leaders, strong, decision makers, not followers of the crowd. But that same ‘system’ strives to tell the same kids what that means and how they should do it.
As parents, we need to lay the “Foundation” for confident leaders… Good way to remember this?
You don’t convey to your children “Smart people think this way, and you are smart.. so you will think this way too…”
You convey: Smart people think…. and it’s OK to think.
That way, they are comfortable to agree with someone else on their own merit, or not. If my son turns out to like Superman, that’s awesome. It’s OK that he likes the same hero as me! But I want him to like Superman because HE likes superman, not just because I’m the Dad..

Star Wars – The Force Awakens – Mine and Parental Review *SPOLIERS* #starwars #review

Star Wars – The Force Awakens  – Parental Review REVIEW – 4/5 STARS (With reasons…) I battled back and forth about writing this review opening night. The main reason that I didn’t, was simply because I needed to sort through it all and not write from a ‘fan high’ perspective. Overall, I thought the movie was great. But there were a few things that popped into my head while watching it, that I shoved down to make room for the ‘drool’ factor during my opening night enjoyment. Remember. This review…
