I Feel Awkward Around My Daughter

Some thoughts from Archibald Hart’s “The Sexual Man” compiled by David Vraza MA.

How much is porn-driven guilt depriving fathers of vital emotional connection with their daughters? Close physical contact might be misinterpreted as sexual, or it might even arouse sexual feelings in us. So we pull back and leave our daughters without their father’s emotional warmth. Grandfathers fear being left alone with their granddaughters. We need healthy

boundaries to nurture healthy relationships – life-giving relationships of meaning and purpose.

Silence breeds distortion. We need a safe environment to explore how our sexual thoughts and behaviors shape our view of ourselves, others, and the world. Come and join us Monday nights to identify and correct our distorted views that leave us less available to our loved ones.
