The Dunphys. The Pritchetts. The Tucker-Pritchetts. Three sets of related families, each with their own approach to life, love and parenting. For Jay Pritchett, it's his second time around the bend. His wife Gloria is a fierce protector of her son and thrilled about the extended family's newest addition (technically her granddaughter), Lily. Phil and Claire have very different parenting styles as well as personalities but usually end up on the same page, or at least close enough. Mitch and Cam are the newest members of the parenthood club, making all the new parent mistakes...and then some. What Modern Family parent are you most like? Take our Profiler to find out.
You're a dramatic parent like Cam. It's no surprise that he's brought his theatrical flair to his parenting style. However, that makes him both confident and insecure at the same time-about his skills as a father as well as his daughter's love. Though he's not necessarily calm during a crisis, he can't think of anything else he rather be doing than
You're a tentative parent like Mitch. He's always second-guessing himself and comparing his parenting skills to Cam's. He constantly needs to be reminded that it's a good thing for Lily that he and Cam are different. He likes rules, guidelines and boundaries, but life is messy. He is driven by wanting to be a better dad than his own father, and is only starting to realize that just by the sheer amount of love, care and attention he has already given his daughter, he already is.
You're the intense parent like Claire. Her standards are so high for her kids because she was out of control growing up. She just wants them to learn from her mistakes, but the perfectionist in her is slowly starting to understand that sometimes it's better to let them screw up themselves because those lessons will sink in a whole lot deeper. Despite her great expectations, when her kids-and life-get her to loosen her grip, she knows how to have a good time.
You're the cool parent like Phil. Phil wants nothing more than to be besties with his kids and their friends. That means he'll do everything he can to make himself relatable to the next generation, from knowing their music to speaking their "language." But even if he waits one beat longer than he probably should to step back into the role of the responsible adult, he always gets there, gently and lovingly teaching his children meaningful lessons.
You're a passionate parent like Gloria. Her zeal for life and love carries over into her parenting style. She encourages her son to be a romantic, to feel everything deeply and follow his heart, less so his head, in all things. But when anyone dares hurt her son, she becomes a tigress, protecting her offspring with sharp claws and an even sharper tongue.
You're an old-school parent like Jay. He loves his kids but his whole world doesn't revolve around them every minute. That's how they learn that life can sometimes be tough and they're not always going to get their way or be the center of attention. He gives his children independence because he likes his independence. But he'll be there to help them get back on their feet when they really mess up.
