I read an article recently about sheltered homeschoolers who do this sort of thing- their allegiance is to daddy even when they are of an age where they are adults and should be thinking on their own. It is fine to go to parents for advice and they may give you opinions ( whether you want them or not) but to be afraid to make a move in any direction without dad's direction is scary. I've heard it referred to as the cult of the family- and daddy is the king who holds absolute power. It's fine to be daddy's princess when you are in elementary school, but to have that kind of relationship into young adulthood is a bit creepy.
