Daddy issues, Electra complex, father complex…The emotional impact of the father-daughter relationship can be long-lasting in the lives of women. Researchers have found that even in situations where other male figures and family members step up to the plate to try and fill in that position, if the father is absent or plays a negative role, daughters have a higher risk of living in poverty, and making poor decisions in relationships in adulthood. That leads us to consider what happened with the daughters who did not have that father and still made great choices? What about the ones who grew up in “model” homes with a loving father and still made poor choices? Just Call Me Daddy examines a variety of father-daughter relationships from the viewpoint of women of all backgrounds and experiences. The good, the bad and the ugly are held between these pages. Their stories are sure to make you laugh, cry and think deeper.
