Question Better orphan father: Phillip Drummond or Henry Warnimont?

So how do Phillip Drummond and Punky Brewster's Henry Warnimont of '80s TV sitcom dads of orphans stack up against each other? Did Phillip have already have an advantage going into this? First of all he is rich, but also he had a biological daughter, so he had parental experience. When Henry adopted Punky, he was going into this parent thing blind.

Also, Phillip always had his kids' backs no matter what. In comparison, when boys were being sexist to Punky, Henry was at first on their side. It took a while for Punky to persuade him to see things her way. Then again, there was reverse affirmative action episode of Diff'rent Strokes in which a white kid took Willis place on the basketball, and Phillip ended up siding against his son.

Arguably though, both of their biggest failures weren't as guardians to their kids, but to their kids' best friends. I am talking about "The Bicycle Man" and "Cherie Lifesaver" episodes.
