    This was a fairly good show but Olivia and Kolby are nice christian girls and I feel Taylor is a slut in disguise! An why cant this Father see this couldnt you find a better behaved child to be in this show instead of flaunting this nasty tyrant?

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control only reinforces the common misconception that the ideals of chastity, humility, obedience, and honesty are outdated in today's world and detrimental to one's emotional and social health.

    As a preachers daughter, I didn't know how to take the premise of this show. I know where many of the criticism behind these girls behavior stems from. As a p.k.(preachers kid) I must say the "Christian" standard needs to be equal. I do not by any means condone or support the behavior of the ladies in the show.

I know where many of the criticism behind these girls behavior stems from. As a p.k.(preachers kid) I must say the "Christian" standard needs to be equal. I do not by any means condone or support the behavior of the ladies in the show. My friend told me, who is a Christian, that preachers Kids are the worst example of Christians. I disagreed with him. Why is that? is it because you assume because our parents are bound by law and know the word, we should act accordingly. OK!? Then do me a favor don't over look the promiscuous girls, alcoholics, and party people in your church. They have been exposed to the same doctrine. I think how much you know about the Bible does not correlate to how holy you are. If that was the case you would have more Christians who acted right. All I am saying is that our standard should not be held to any hire, then a friend of yours who is in the church, knows his bible and continues to be in inappropriate relationships with girls. That is not right. Wrong is also wrong. These girls obviously are choosing to be yolked with the dangers of the world. A complete devotion to Christ is hard, and rewarding experience, but it requires many sacrifices. These sacrifices are not some all are willing to take. This show is showing typical teen girls, who battle with obedience to God, and are trying to figure out who they are in Christ, and who he is. I do not think because they are daughters of preachers, that it should make there character more wrong, or wild. Expand

    These interactions have none of the dark drama found on "Teen Mom" or "16 and Pregnant"--at least not yet.

    Preachers' Daughters is pretty much the show you expect/fear it will be but with just one girl who's really gone down a bad path.

    Even if you’re skeptical about the carefully massaged drama, it’s hard not to admire a single show so meticulously accessorized with that many commercial points of entry.
