We mourn the loss of Pat Harrington, best remembered as “One Day at a Time’s” Dwayne Schneider, the building superintendent who thought of himself as a ladies man, but had a genuine affection for the single mom played by Bonnie Franklin and her two rambunctious daughters.
The Washington Post’s Adam Bernstein has a warm appreciation for Harrington, reporting that he urged that the original idea for the character, a lecherous married man, be shifted to something more likeable. “On Mr. Harrington’s insistence, Schneider was recast as a bachelor with a comically grandiose sense of his appeal to the opposite sex.”
The most important factors to keep in mind: (1) Do your homework — just because a movie is rated PG or because you vaguely remember seeing it as a kid or because it is animated or their friends have seen it does not mean it is right for your child. (2) Know your child — just because your other child was fine with it at this age does not mean that this one will be. Remember that sometimes the greatest gift you can give your child is cover so they don’t have to be the ones to tell their friends they think it’s too scary.
