House mother

To see how preachers daughters act out isn't surprising these girls need guidance as well as the Lord in which I don't see them getting they need more than a talking to from their pastor.. They need a house mother like me

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2):
Kids say (2):

There's nothing remarkable about the style of Preachers' Daughters, which, like so many reality series before it, taps voyeuristic clips of what would otherwise be intimate conversations between family members or friends for the pleasure of the viewing audience. For their part, none of the participants seem affected by the presence of the cameras (although the teens seem to love it being there at times), and the emotions they share come across as real enough, but it's always hard to swallow the validity of the heart-wrenching exchanges when the camera intrudes on the moments.

That said, the players raise a lot of issues that are relevant to more than just their own lives, and teens and parents who tune in together will have a lot to talk about once the show is over. Dating and sex, drinking, drug use, even basic communication -- these issues and more come to a head, and the characters' candor certainly offers food for thought for viewers on both sides of the generational divide. Even more so does the show's embrace of faith as a source of strength for families struggling with various trials in the home and with their family members.
