5 TV Parents We Love The Most!

Sandy & Kirsten Cohen, The O.C.

The parental figures to everyone in Orange County, Sandy (Peter Gallagher) and Kirsten (Kelly Rowan) balance each other. With his more freeform ideas of parenting compared to her stricter ideals. They are by no means perfect — from the very start, Sandy and Kirsten fight. When Sandy brings home Ryan (Ben McKenzie) after serving as his defense attorney and seeing his unfit home, Kirsten protests the idea of a delinquent living in their house. Especially with their teenage son, Seth (Adam Brody).

They may get into arguments, but in the end, their love for their family and each other always brings them back and re-aligns their values to always work to protect their family. Sandy and Kirsten provide a paternal and maternal presence not only for their biological son but also Ryan while also aiding their friends, like when Sandy fights to get Marissa (Mischa Barton) back in school. They try their hardest and they care, which the audience can see through their actions.

Burt Hummel, Glee

Kurt (Chris Colfer) lost his mother at a young age, leaving him with his hyper-masculine mechanic father, Burt (Mike O’Malley). Seemingly polar opposites, Burt embraces his son. Even though he may have tried to suppress some of Kurt’s interests, when Kurt ultimately comes out as gay, he fully supports him and reminds Kurt of his love. Burt then takes on a second son, Finn (Corey Monteith), when he marries Finn’s mom. His love for both never wavers. He shows his dedication when he discusses with Finn his decision to marry Rachel (Lea Michele), and, with good intentions, tries to get him to delay the wedding. And how can we ever forget his recreation of the “Single Ladies” dance for Kurt? Priceless

Phil e Claire Dunphy, Modern Family

Phil (Ty Burrell) and Claire (Julie Bowen) aren’t just co-parents, they’re best friends. Despite having vastly different personalities, they love each other deeply and support each other in their careers and life. However, their differing personalities do impact their approaches to parenting, which causes some conflict. Phil approaches issues casually with his goofy personality, while Claire leans towards a stricter parenting style. When Haley (Sarah Hyland) first starts dating Dylan (Reid Ewing), Phil becomes close with the new boyfriend while Claire finds him wildly immature. In the end, they agree on what matters most — their family — and even go on their own stakeout to see if their son (Nolan Gould) is doing drugs.

Stef e Lena Adams Foster, The Fosters e Good Trouble

The Adams Foster household is no stranger to intense drama. You can always feel the love in the house despite the constant presence of uncertainty, from the precarious fate of their adopted daughter Callie (Maia Mitchell) in the justice system and figuring out whether they can reunite her and her biological brother (Hayden Byerly) to their children experiencing a school shooting. Regardless of their circumstances, the moms always support their kids and are there to offer a comforting hug. While, as with many parents, Stef (Teri Polo) and Lena (Sherri Saum) face strains in their relationship, like when Stef came to terms with her internalized homophobia while planning their wedding, they both are natural caretakers that seek to provide comfort to each other and their kids.

Joyce Byers, Stranger Things

Joyce (Winona Ryder) has gone to unprecedented lengths for her kids. Everyone treats Joyce as if she’s suffering from a mental breakdown when she senses that the missing Will (Noah Schnapp) is communicating with her through the lights. However, she persists, despite the criticism, and eventually goes into the Upside Down, risking her life, to rescue Will. After that, her inquisitive mind and motherly instincts help her with other supernatural issues in the town. Even with everything she has endured, she is willing to fight Russians and travel into different dimensions to save her sons.
