If you haven't seen a single episode of ABC's Modern Family, then you're missing out on a lot. The half-hour comedy, which offers a mirthful yet realistic look at today's complex family structure and the numerous issues that come along with it, is packed with gags and misguided parenting advice though it almost always usually ends with a heartwarming positive message.
This week's Modern Family
episode alone dabbled into the dynamics of a mother-daughter relationship, which isn't always sunshine and rainbows as demonstrated by Claire, who humiliated her daughter Alex in front of her friends, and the consequence of a mother's smothering love to her son through the story of Gloria and Manny, just to name a few.
While there is really no such thing as the perfect parent on Modern Family
or in real life, it made me think which of the characters on this show gives the best parenting advice. Is it overprotective Claire or the cool dad Phil? Perhaps its grandpa Jay or his brutally frank wife Gloria? Maybe mild-mannered Mitchell or the bubbly Cameron? Maybe it's even one of the kids?
