Ken Denmead

Ken Denmead is a New York Times Best Selling Author.  Geek Dad has provided Ken with many opportunities including interviewing Adam Savage of the Myth Busters and Morgan Freeman.  Although he believes one of his best qualities is having a sense of humour, he takes parenting very seriously.  Ken and his wife have spoken to their children as if they were “speaking to any other person.”  He believes this has helped with the communication of his two teenage boys and how they relate to people.

My favourite Ken Denmead quote:
“Every time somebody tells us that one of our boys have been exceedingly polite or they’re very mature it’s very heart warming.  I’ve gained an new checkmark in the parenting column.  I upped a level.  Achievement unlocked.”

Be warned: during the interview Ken also shares a “dirty secret” (rated G).
