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.

I’ll admit, I wasn’t…

Big Hero 6 – Parental Review #bighero6 #review

  I have to say, wow.  I wasn’t sure what I was going to get from this movie.  Wow. It was a last minute decision to even see the movie.  We literally drove by the local theater,  and decided right in front of the place,  making a large u turn! I took my wife,  my son,  and my daughter.  My son is 6, my daughter is 4, and the movie entertained them as well as the parents. The movie is about a brilliant boy genius that suffers a loss… A…
