Geeky parenting, or, encouraging your kids' passions (including video games)
A few weeks ago I had the great pleasure of speaking at PAX Prime, an outrageously popular gaming conference in Seattle, WA. The topic: Geek Parenting. Why Rael and I were invited to be on this panel I HAVE NO IDEA. Ahem.
It was a wonderful and eye-opening experience. There's so much I could say about the talk and the conference, but in my latest Babble Voices post, I decided to focus on one theme that kept emerging: getting behind your kids' passions, even when they don't reflect your own.
