Dealing with Daddy Issues by host Alicia Ramsey M.Ed.

July 30, 2021
This episode is a conversation with Alicia Ramsey of AR Consulting about the stereotypical term often given to women—daddy issues. The term “daddy issues” gets tossed around a lot, but most of the people doing the tossing are getting it all wrong. It’s become a catchall term to describe almost anything a woman does regarding sex and relationships. Men may say a woman has “daddy issues,” or even women themselves referring to having “daddy issues” well, MEN has daddy issues. The term “daddy issues” is not an official medical term or disorder. Nevertheless, as a woman with a complicated relationship with her father, the term has some validity. In the podcast, information is shared from a biblical perspective accompanied by recent data. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)Trusted Source, poor parent-child relationships, particularly with fathers, is one of the risk factors linked to a greater likelihood of perpetrating sexual violence. The article also shares adolescents aged 14-17 were by far the most likely to be sexually victimized; nearly one in six (16.3%) are sexually victimized in the past. If you have been violated or victimized, please call The National Sexual Assault Telephone Hotline- 1(800)-656-HOPE(4673). It is never too late to ask for help.
