Best Conversations | Single Dad Laughing
Why you’ll “like” it: Single Dad Laughing (SDL) provides a real, honest and funny account of life as a single dad. His love for his son and his passion for parenting shine through in his posts, which seem to cover whatever pops into his head that day – from how he learned to be okay with spending $100 on a pair of jeans to how to (semi-politely) kick out friends who have overstayed their welcome. He’ll also hook you with interesting SDL polls, like: What age do you think it’s appropriate for children to be on Facebook?
What parents talk about: Responses to SDL’s posts and polls, which range from silly Photoshopped pictures with his kid to serious thoughts on the bullying tragedies.
