Who runs the world? Moms. While we love our own moms so much, the hard-working mums from some of our most beloved TV shows are pretty great too. In between comforting their kiddos and cracking jokes at their spouses, they’re also teaching us some pretty valuable lessons. Scroll on for some rad wisdom from the TV moms who make us smile.

Always Be Compassionate

Carol Brady’s lessons always revolved around trust and kindness. With the help of Alice, she knew how to handle her kids to a T. She taught us that family doesn’t have to be blood related — it can also include everyone you care about. (Photo via ABC)

Be Yourself

Morticia Addams is one badass mother. Not only do her and Gomez have one of the best TV romances, but she always puts her family first. She might not be considered “normal,” but she is a force to be reckoned with. She inspired us to never be afraid of being ourselves and to always stand up for what we believe in. Oh, and that black is always chic. (Photo via ABC)

Family Is First

As a single mother, Ashley Marin will do whatever it takes to protect her daughter, no matter what. This mama grizzly might skirt the law at times, but we’re always moved by how much she cares for Hanna. Mother of the year? We think so. (Photo via ABC Family)

Always Do Your Best

Rainbow Johnson has a heart of gold. She wants to be the best friend in her kids’ lives, while still giving them the space to pursue their passions. As a crazy talented surgeon, she’s proof that hard work and trying your best always pays off. (Photo via ABC)

Family Isn’t Perfect

Lucille Bluth knows how to live life, and she won’t take no for an answer. She teaches us that with a little comedic humor (and a drink or two), you and your family can tackle everything. In other words, it’s totally okay if your family isn’t perfect (what family is?). (Photo via Fox/Netflix)

Always Stand Up For Yourself

Claire Huxtable was never afraid to speak her mind, and she always stood up for women’s rights. She preached laughing at the little things and taking charge of your own life. Can we get an AMEN? (Photo via NBC)

Don’t Let Anything Get In Your Way

As Mother of Dragons, Daenerys Targaryen is the ultimate #GIRLBOSS. She’ll do whatever it takes to protect her dragons and her land, even if it means playing outside the lines. She will break that wheel, if you know what we mean. (Photo via HBO)

Don’t Forget Where You Came From

Jessica Haung is a hard-working woman with a strong head on her shoulders. She teaches her boys that success is important, but it is meaningless if you lose yourself. We’re taking notes on all of her power moves. (Photo via ABC)

Never Lose Your Faith

Alba Villanueva is one tough cookie. She is devoted to God, but she’s even more committed to her family. She’s always counseling Jane and Xo that if you don’t have your faith in your loved ones, then you’ll lose an important part of yourself. (Photo via The CW)

Friendships Are Important

We know her to be a lover of politics and waffles — lots of waffles. Her friendship with Ann and invention of Galentine’s Day is proof that she’s everyone’s honorary BFF, and we can’t praise her enough. (Photo via NBC)

Go After Your Dreams

Lily Aldrin knows how to have fun, whether that’s in her trusty local bar or the suburbs. She’s always encouraging her friends and loved ones to pursue their passions. We can get behind that advice! (Photo via CBS)

It’s Okay To Screw Up

Lorelei Gilmore was always real with Rory, even in her failures. She helped Rory realize that not only is screwing up a natural part of life, but it’s how you deal with it afterwards that’s way more important. She isn’t perfect, and that’s just what makes her so beloved in our eyes. (Photo via The CW)

Make Fun Of Yourself

Who doesn’t love Lucy? Lucille Ricardo was the ultimate funny mom. She believed in never being ashamed of yourself and doing whatever it takes to conquer your dreams. We give her mad props for loving full-heartedly and always marching to the beat of her own drum. (Photo via CBS)

Listen To Your Heart

Marge Simpson is a trooper. She takes care of four kids (yes, we are including Homer). Thanks to Marge, we’re following our guts and to only doing our best.

It’s Okay To Forgive

We miss this show more than anything, and Tami Taylor is a major reason why. Her wit and southern charm were always present when she was on screen, especially when she was showing off her forgiveness skills. (Photo via NBC)
