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control only reinforces the common misconception that the ideals of chastity, humility, obedience, and honesty are outdated in today's world and detrimental to one's emotional and social health.

    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.
