Here Are The Many Ways Gloria from ‘Modern Family’ Is A Kick-Ass Mother
Gloria Pritchett, Sofia Vergara’s character on “Modern Family,” is often criticized for being a one-dimensional stereotype of Latinas. But, if you actually take time to watch the show, there are lots of moments where Gloria shows more depth than you realize.
She promotes positive body image.
Gloria compliments her son, Manny, and praises how wonderful he is whenever she gets a chance.
She’ll even go as far as enlisting other family members to build his confidence:
But she does it for a reason.
Soooooo this ^ is why Gloria tries so hard to make sure her son does not have a body complex.
She’s talked about the difficulties of learning a new language.
And she encourages Manny to speak Spanish…
Even though he’d rather learn French.
She doles out great love advice.
And she defends her home by any means necessary.
Remember the time someone egged the Pritchett house? Gloria was HEATED. You know the saying, an eye for an egg. (No one says that.)
She won’t let anyone tell her kids they can’t do something.
Even if they can’t.
She helps her kids conquer their fears.
Much like my mom, Gloria has a fear of bikes and her children riding them. But Gloria knows her fears shouldn’t be passed down to her kids, so she lets Jay teach Manny and herself how to ride a bike.
Manny loved the bike lesson. Gloria did not.
In the end, Gloria becomes an example for Manny, showing him she won’t give in to her fears.
She keeps her family traditions alive.
She reminds Manny to stop and smell the roses. Literally…
She makes that che-che-che-CHEDDAR!
Before Gloria married Jay, she was a single mother who worked her booty off as a hairdresser to make ends meet. She not only enjoyed it AND was really good at it, but also missed it from time to time.
She also teaches Manny how to defend himself…
And how to walk with confidence.
Just like her.
She’s always checking in on her kids to make sure they’re OK…
Even when it’s to the point of smothering.
And she’s always reminding her family they are number one.
