    This so True and kids are using computers and tablets younger and younger. My daughter is two and a half and she loves the iPad. Kids pick up computers quick and will have such a head start on the kids no yet using them.

  3. i’m all for sharing passions like this….but as long as there’s balance…..an iPad will never replace turning all the gadgets off and spending quality time with the kids. X

  4. @Christine: So true, but I believe that gadgets could be very helpfull in child’s education while having a quality time. I remember seeing a video clip where a child suddenly knows more about the stars in the sky than her dad. (off course thanks to her smarthphone that gave real time information while she was looking at the stars trough her cellphone).

  5. Young generation is more technical as we. They are by birth talented, they use to play video games by ipad or iphone instead of out door games.

    In that manner, Geek Dad is the best resource for them to get learn by fun.. They really enjoyed it a lot..

    Thanks

  8. These statistics are part of a new wave of fathers who are using technology to connect with their families to create fun and memorable traditions and are more confident in their own abilities as parents. I personally wouldn’t want it any other way! As I read this article it was totally me! I guess I am a geek dad – and if so… I am proud of it!

  9. A Geek Dad has to put more effort into brainwashing his children. Try explaining to a child why he should watch Star Trek when he keeps bumping into Paul Scholes on a regular basis. Forcing him to sit down and watch Lois and Clark when he can see his friends outside playing could be seen as inhumane torture (akin to waterboarding as far as he is concerned) but I see it as his education in the finer things in life.
