Emotional Signs of Father Hunger

from ‘The Search for Lost Fathering’ by James L. Schaller, M.D., M.A.R., P.C.

Many people have a void inside them that is due to "father hunger," and this disguised hunger has had great impact on the way they live. Do any of these statements apply to you?

The conditions listed above are often associated with incomplete father relationships.
The absence of a mature father-child connection creates a void in the soul, a residual "father hunger."
Father hunger is the result of receiving too little quality fathering as a child or young adult. Some argue that even grown men and women need fathers or father surrogates and that the absence of such role modeling and support is associated with less fulfillment in life. In general, father hunger results from too little intimacy between child and father.
