Roseanne has been considered the mother of all television mothers because she just did it. She took on motherhood while flying by the seat of her pants and she didn't look back. She went with it one episode at a time. At least that's what we thought until the season finale when we found out that the entire show was based on her book and that most of what made most parents feel normal turned out to be fiction. In all reality, the revelation at the end of the series didn't taint everything that parents learned from the first time the theme song played in 1988 until the ending credits in 1997. There was too much to relate to. There were too many moments in which parents that messed up didn't beat themselves up too badly because Roseanne made it look okay. If it was in the show, that meant these things happened to people in real life. From the financial struggles of the Connors to Roseanne's long hours in the diner, mothers and fathers saw themselves in Roseanne and Dan. A voice was given to the working-class American. It was given to the moms and dads that love their kids with all their hearts, but occasionally just want some peace and quiet. That mom that felt bad because she gave her child a dead stare at the kitchen table over something ridiculous they said or did didn't feel so bad because Roseanne did it too. The dad struggling with letting his daughter start dating saw Dan's struggle. The Connors had difficult decisions to make when it came to their kids. They also had difficult conversations about topics that mothers and fathers around the world dread having to address. Although the show was fictional, they did it so well that parents had a sort of guide on how to approach difficult situations. The dialog was honest because the show wasn't based on an unrealistic family. Instead, the show was based on what families deal with frequently. In conclusion, Roseanne taught us about how values can slip but love for your children will never cease. The show taught us about forgiveness, understanding, and overcoming those things that damage us. It also showed us that it is alright to have a sense of humor in a tough situation. You can even joke around with your kids a little, although they may refuse to believe it is funny. Since Roseanne concluded two decades ago, not another show has been able to meet the challenge and perhaps that's why you can still find the show playing somewhere on TV every day.
