Abstract

The proposed research aims to investigate the discourses constructed by daughters when discussing relationships with their father during adolescence and their own personal views on romantic relationships. Adolescence is the critical period in which the individual begins to break away from the family circle and develop their own personality. A time when often the attention shifts from family and is replaced by time spent with close peer groups as a source of intimacy and support. As a result of this, the father can often become an emotionally absent figure to their developing teenage daughter. The study will involve six interviews exploring daughter’s perceptions of fatherhood and romantic relationships. All semi-structured interviews will be transcribed followed by thematic and discourse analysis allowing a greater depth of understanding.
