If you are, know, or love a Gryffindor, you’re well aware of what makes us tick. (Or, if you’ve never read Harry Potter and don’t know what a Gryffindor is, stop everything you’re doing, question all of your life choices, and then go read the books immediately.) Whether we're righteous know-it-alls like Hermione Granger, mischievous tricksters like Fred and George Weasley, or fabulously chilly and capable like Professor Minerva McGonagall, the overriding features that distinguish Gryffindors are our "daring, nerve, and chivalry," according to the Sorting Hat. That’s why Gryffindors make the best parents. No matter what else we have going for us mentally, physically, or emotionally; we are courageous first and foremost and, yes, often to a fault.
It goes without saying that all of the houses have their strengths, though Slytherin does need to get its life together with that whole “pure of blood thing.” Sorry guys, but even the redeeming qualities of Snape can't let you off the hook for that mess. We need the knowledge that comes from our intellect-over-everything friends in Ravenclaw, the get-sh*t-done ethos of our hardworking and loyal friends in Hufflepuff, and even the cunning that Slytherin is notoriously known for.
However, as a proud Gryffindor mom, I have to say that bravery and boldness can be especially helpful when it comes to this parenting thing. Of course, this isn't to say that other moms from other houses aren't capable, amazing parents. Of course they are. But in my humble-albeit-slightly-biased opinion, Gryffindors make the best parents, for the following reasons. Look, if you don't agree we can always settle this via a friendly game of Quidditch.
