My husband and I have recently discovered reruns of "The Rifleman," which I think must have been on in the late 50s or early 60s, since it's in black & white and is a half-hour show. The father Lucas, I've since read by googling, was the first widowed father on TV, and though the show is, of course, a western and there is naturally some gunplay, a lot of the stories revolve around or at least contain Lucas's efforts to teach his son Mark right from wrong.

He does such a good job of it! I know it's TV and things are wrapped up in less than 30 minutes, but I wish I'd had a few pointers from this show when my daughter was growing up. Oh, she turned out fine  :) but I do wonder if things might have been a bit easier (especially when she was a teen) if we'd seen the reruns of this show then.

What TV parent do you wish you'd seen when you were raising your kids?

I'm still raising my kid and so far I'm sticking w/ the hard stuff (like being consistant, which is really important since she's 2), but I remember my mom telling me she wished her mom was the mom Partridge family (child of the 70's) or that her fam was the Brady family.

I had the beginnings of the Brady Buch thing - we raised three daughters and three sons. My big regret was that I never had an "Alice."
