Fans are still reeling after the six-part final season of Game of Thrones culminated in the death of their Queen, the exile of Westeros’s one true heir and the unexpected rise to power of one barely qualified, hardly present, say-no-more-than-five-words-every-season mysterious King. But if it’s any consolation, writers did give us Sansa’s character development, a moment between Jon and Ghost and stellar parenting from Daenerys who raised Drogon to know it was the throne that eventually consumed the Mother of Dragons

For any parent that isn’t Stannis Baratheon, that’s a win. 

We can take quite a few parenting lessons from the show that consumed our Sunday and Monday evenings for all of eight years though. There’s the Mother of Dragon doing the most for eight seven seasons, showing us you don’t have to give birth to be a mom, and then there’s Cersei’s unconditional, unwavering love for her children, even the one that’ll become TVs most hated character of all time. 

There’s the eight-season long lesson of how to raise loyal, brave, good children: 


And how not to: 


The show has given us a few great lessons in parenting, and some glorious, totally relatable memes. So we thought, instead of being bitter, we’d be better, and reflect on the times that made us better parents, all the while putting a smile on our faces. 

I mean, if the season didn’t come through, the internet certainly did.
