Today is May the Fourth, or as we call it in Geekdom, Star Wars Day. I’m not really sure how the whole thing started but it’s awesome that it did. Today is the day where all Star Wars fans and geeks alike can celebrate their geek-ness with pride. I celebrate it with my kids every year. I give them some small Star Wars related present, stickers, Pez, coloring book, etc., they all wear their Star Wars apparel, and sometimes we even have Star Wars themed dinners. Last year we had…Read More

Rogue One – Teaser Trailer We posted this Rogue One Trailer on the facebook page too. But we wanted it on the website as well for a little discussion. The first impression I got of this trailer, was that I was watching a World War 2 movie, set in space. Honestly? I think I like that. It’s a different feel than I have gotten from the other movies, including the latest Force Awakens stuff. (Which I liked…) I really liked the ‘vintage’ feel to it, yet not? Not sure…Read More
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 – 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…Read More
