“A father is a daughter’s first love. He plays a huge role in his daughter’s development, impacting her successes and failures well into adulthood,” explained Dr. Vaughn. “When a father figure is missing, a daughter will develop ‘father hunger,’ and crave the essence of a father’s love in the deepest parts of her soul.”
