The Definitive Ranking Of Parents On "Game Of Thrones"

From worst to best.

Posted on

21. Stannis & Selyse Baratheon

HBO / Via google.com

These two basically treated their daughter like livestock: Locked her in a cage for her entire life and then burned her at the stake as an offering to the Lord of Light.

19. Craster

HBO / Via google.com

"Crasternomics" - noun: Sustaining your stronghold by trading your sons to supernatural creatures for protection while creating an endless supply of children by marrying and impregnating all of your daughters.

18. Daenerys "Mother of Dragons" Targaryen

HBO / Via google.com

Dany is that mom who has 18 different "MY KID IS AN HONOR STUDENT" bumper stickers on the back of her minivan despite her kids bullying the nerds into doing their homework. Her oldest child killed someone and ran away from home, so she chained the other two up in a dungeon instead of, you know, teaching them not to kill people.

14. Lysa Arryn

HBO / Via google.com

She breastfeeds her adolescent son, doesn't let him play outside, and generally still treats him like an infant. Oh, and she also murdered her baby daddy, for whatever that's worth. At least she finally got to be with the man she fell head over heels for!

13. Oberyn Martell & Ellaria Sand

HBO / Via google.com

If only the Sand Snakes had inherited their father's gift for witty dialogue instead of their mother's for doing the stupidest things possible.

10. Davos Seaworth

HBO / Via google.com

Sometimes when I close my eyes, I pretend that we're living in an alternate reality where Davos is Shireen's real father, and they just sit around all day reading and playing with wooden animals. Then I wake up to the sound of her screams.

9. Catelyn Stark

HBO / Via google.com

Pros: Did a pretty good job with her actual kids, and warned Robb against being a stupid idiot in love.

Cons: Was the absolute worst at projecting her anger onto Jon Snow.

5 out of 6 ain't bad, I guess?

6. Olenna Tyrell

HBO / Via google.com

Her son could get caught pooping in a urinal and she'd have the principal apologizing for interrupting him by the end of the parent-teacher conference. Mace has definitely done this and you can't convince me otherwise.

4. Mace Tyrell

HBO / Via google.com

Papa Tyrell is that dad who dresses up as a different superhero every morning and acts like everything is normal when he drops his kids off at school as Superman. Glorious.

3. Cersei Lannister

HBO / Via google.com

There are a lot of things that you can call Cersei, but a bad mother isn't one of them. Everything she does is for her kids, and she would rather burn an entire city to the ground than see one of them harmed. So, basically, RIP Dorne. It was fun while it lasted (not really).

1. "Duncle" Jaime Lannister

HBO / Via google.com

Jaime is the best possible father to his children in the hardest possible way: By not letting anyone know that he's their father. At the end of the day, parenting is about putting your kids first, and nobody does that better than the Kingslayer. Everyone, please, give him a hand.
