I guess I'm kind of a closet Leave It to Beaver fan. Corny, of course, but some of the themes I remember in various plots: divorce, alcoholism, credit card debt, cross-dressing*, underage drinking / smoking. It wasn't a matter of Ward saying "Don't do that" but it showed how parents being upfront with their kids rather than talking around something is usually the best policy.

*Wally has to put on a dress for a school play and refuses; Ward tells him basically to never take himself so seriously that he can't laugh at himself.
