Film Review: Investigation 13 from GoFatherhood® – Single Dad, Parents Article

There are so many tropes in the too-often formulaic horror genre that it’s impossible for these films not to veer into the cinematic cliché now and again. Urban legends? Paranormal investigators finding that yes, there really are supernatural entities? Abandoned and haunted insane asylums? Secondary characters with secrets to hide?

Must Women Leave Men to Get Them to Change? – Single Dad, Parents Article

(Image/David Colarusso)“Would you have changed if she had not left you?” Within an hour of answering this exact question in the comments of How to Change Your Shitty Husband, someone else sent an email asking the same question, and whether I’d written an article about it before. I have answered this question many times—but I think thoughtlessly and too cynically. Maybe because I thought the question was actually about me. Maybe sometimes it is.

A place where you feel a million miles from our vast urban sprawls. Somewhere you can reconnect…
