May 9, 2014This should be 10 stars.I really appreciate that this show is not sugar-coated. I wish it got more ratings. First, i love the word at the very beginning of the show. My Viewpoint is Pk's or Preacher daughters are still every bit of human and go through the same issues and things that an average family and young adult go through.My understanding is the daughters actually are trying to get attention from their fathers, because it seems the dad's (aka) pastor- preachers do not seem to know how to turn off preacher when they get home.Sometimes a father can relate to his daughter or children and family without seeming like you are speaking to a congregation.The scriptures are not always necessary to comfort someone who might not understand yet to that level in Christ.The fathers are not listening nor are they really concerned enough about the attempted cries and needs for attention from their daughters.The fathers just seem embarrassed by the behaviors of their children.Some seem non- involved about the why's of their daughters decisions.Bottom line the fathers are too overly worried about image as a Preacher instead of fixing the brokeness and root of their daughters pain or healing.The need for someone to listen without judgement.These men of God seem to be absent of this fact.
Every act is not always about disobedience. Other things could be going on, and some things can just be plain mistakes that a person has to make to grow.The Pk dad's are trying, but their position has a higher priority than their kids and family.I think you can have boundaries without always making that person feel guilty, if they make a mistake.I know this because i am a PK, and it takes time to grow and be strong, plus you are having to be held to a different standard than others.Being scrutinized if you should make a mistake. It can be unfair at times.No person likes to be in the spotlight or have people gossip about them while they are going through hard times, or vulnerable while going through dark moments.We all are searching for meaning and purpose.Searching for who we are and who we want to be, and sometimes its not always the road our parents laid out for us to follow .Stay blessed!… Full Review »
Jul 19, 2013While the show does explore the trials and tribulations that a preacher's daughter must handle, it also exposes the overbearing vicegrips each of the families strict and unbending moral values hold on their children. This show offers a unique perspective on the issues many average girls must face on a regular basis such as teenaged motherhood, promiscuity, dating, and one's choice of college, all told through the perspective of a preachers daughter. It's appeal can be derived from Olivia's struggle for redemption for her checkered past, Kolby's fight to maintain a semblance of normalcy in the form of dating despite her overprotective preacher parents, who expect complete and utter abstinence from their daughters until marriage, and Taylor's rebellious and oftentimes outrageous actions in response to the social stigma attached to her father's title. While sincere and strong, with an emphasis on family values, this reality show unfortunately portrays preachers as parents who render their children unable to function in the real world while also remaining true to their upbringing. In fact, if you are a parent trying to find role models in the media for proper behavior and moral integrity, this show is not the best choice. The sometimes morally gray decisions of the children as well as the inability of the parents to maintain control only reinforces the common misconception that the ideals of chastity, humility, obedience, and honesty are outdated in today's world and detrimental to one's emotional and social health.… Full Review »
