There seem to be an endless number of television shows set in high school, and often the parents play a large role in the series. These parents range from amazing to beyond horrible. Some parents are not only seen as good parents, but are also kind of cool. They may not always be cool in the most expected sense, but in some unique way, these parents are awesome. These TV parents are all very unique, and could be called cool by some viewers and maybe even by some of their children.
11. Joyce Summers, “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”
Joyce Summers is the mother of Buffy Summers, the Slayer. She is unaware of her daughter’s role and abilities until the end of the second season of the series. Before and after learning of her daughter’s powers, Joyce is not a bad mother, but she seems more than a little oblivious to what’s going on with Buffy. In general, she is a loving, caring, and supportive mother to Buffy, raising her on her own after her divorce from Buffy’s father. Joyce adjusts to her daughter’s power and responsibility, treating her like an adult in most respects. Not only is she a pretty understanding mother to one of the most complicated daughters in the world, but she also acts as a kind of surrogate mother to all of Buffy’s friends, who seem to view her as pretty cool.
