Posted on

21. Stannis & Selyse Baratheon

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.

18. Daenerys "Mother of Dragons" Targaryen

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.

You know that joke you make about dads with big families not being able to remember their kids' names? Yeah, that's Robert.

15. Robb Stark

On one hand, he managed to let his kid get killed in the womb. On the other hand, his kid didn't grow up to be Olly. It's a push, really.

14. Lysa Arryn

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

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.

11. Jeor Mormont

Without Jeor, we would've never been able to hear the honey-tongued J-Bear whisper "Khaleesi" in our ears, and for that we are eternally grateful.

10. Davos Seaworth

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.

7. Roose Bolton

Somehow, Roose managed to hook his psychopathic son up with one of the most beautiful women in the realm. Get that man a mug.

6. Olenna Tyrell

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.

5. Walder Frey

The Freys are basically the Brady Bunch on steroids (Walda is Jan), and Walder provides for his kids better than Mike and Carol ever could.

4. Mace Tyrell

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

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

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.
