* ''Series/ForeverKnight'': One episode featured a serial killer who was targeting women because of memories of his horribly abusive mother. They all reminded him of her in some way, but since they're not his actual mother he didn't derive any closure from it and had to keep on killing.

* ''CampRock'': In this DisneyChannel movie, Tess' almost-instantaneous HeelFaceTurn comes as a result of her mother taking a cell phone call during her performance at Final Jam. To Tess' credit, she owns up to being a bitch despite the fact that the girls she's bullied don't actually show her any sympathy or even bring this up, making the application of this surprisingly somewhat less of a BrokenAesop than the previous examples.
** An earlier scene in the movie showed that Tess' mother had made something of a habit of not making enough time for her daughter. (Tess tries to call her and, though we're not privy to the mother's end of the conversation, it's made clear that she blew Tess off because she was busy with her concert.) The phone call thing at Final Jam was apparently just the latest in a long string of these incidents.

** Gibbs might be displaying this himself--his penchant for redheads might stem from the fact that his mother was one.
