Part I…because I’m sure I’ll have more tips to offer as we get further down this nerd-dom road.
Step 1: Marry and reproduce with a fellow geek.
Step 2: Introduce technology upon birth.
Step 3: Create subtle geek associations in your child’s brain by comparing them to characters from your favorite movies.
Step 4: Read, read, read! (Then, contemplate taking your 4 year old to the midnight showing of the Hobbit next week.)
Step 5: Tell your children that public school is the devil and homeschooling is the only way you’ll get to heaven.
Step 6: Subject them to hours and hours and hours of musical theater.
Step 7: Sit back and reap the rewards of your hard work.
