** Weiss Schnee heavily {{implie|dTrope}}s that her father was abusive towards her and possibly her sister in an unknown fashion while they were growing up. He received a lot of stress from dealing with the White Fang's terrorist acts against the family's Dust Company, so he often would come home from work in a less than pleasant mood and lash out at his children. He's even worse than that. In Volume 4, he [[spoiler:strikes her, disinherits her to the Schnee Dust Company and practically ''imprisons her'' in her room [[DisproportionateRetribution just because she bruised his ego at a party]].]] It's also implied in the manga that her battle against the giant knight depicted in the (canon) White trailer, was against a Grimm construct her father summoned to beat her into giving up her ambitions of going to Beacon - in other words, Papa Schnee is a man who would unleash a soulless monster (which also ends up inflicting a non-serious wound on her) on his own daughter merely to assert his authority. Volume 5 ultimately reveals that he married Weiss' mom [[GoldDigger just for the Schnee name]].\\

Added DiffLines:

** There was speculation as to the reason as to why Raven Branwen abandoned her family prior to the start of the series. [[spoiler:But as of Volume 5, it's become abundantly clear that she is a completely warped person who only cares about her Bandit Clan in Mistral. She barely keeps in contact with her brother Qrow, and when she does, it's for information he might have. When he rightly calls the bandits that raised him and Raven a group of thieves and murderers, Raven calls them their family. This just highlights Raven's VERY unique definition of the word, as she doesn't even seem to care or even acknowledge that Yang has lost an arm at this point. When Yang actually manages to track down Raven's camp, she seemingly welcomes Yang back into her life, if only because she feels Yang's finally proven herself worthy of her time. When Yang reveals she only needs Raven's [[ThinkingUpPortals Semblance]] to find Qrow and Ruby, all Raven can say is that family only comes around when they need something. She then reveals the only reason she trained to be Huntress wss not to save anyone, but to learn how to KILL Huntsman since they were the only notable threat outside of [[TheHeartless the Grimm]] to their clan. To place the final nail in the coffin, Cinder and her group track down Raven's camp after Yang leaves, and to try to save her clan, she sells out her brother and child to the BigBad.]]
*** WordOfGod has said that Team STRQ fell apart to Raven's issues. Thankfully, the rest of the team wound up becoming a true family in and of themselves, with Summer and Taiyang being the GoodParents to their daughters Ruby and Yang, with Qrow sticking around as the CoolUncle.

It is horrible that children suffer cruelties at the hands of those who are supposed to be the most loving and trustworthy figures in their lives, and the damage can take years to undo, even with competent assistance (if it can be undone at all - often, the emotional scars will stay forever). The parental abuse on children can be considered as the worst treason there is. Sticks and stones may break bones, but nasty and evil words by one's own own parents shatter souls and can cause irrepairable emotional wounds and scars and hurt even as adult.

Needless to say, parental abuse can lead into post-traumatic stress disorder and to similar symptoms as on ShellShockedVeteran. If you are concerned this may describe you or someone you love, please take it very seriously. See [[http://www.helpguide.org/articles/abuse/child-abuse-and-neglect.htm this help guide]] for some RealLife information and organizations to contact. Also, [[http://www.chiworld.org/ Chiworld]] has an international list of hotlines and websites you can contact if you need to discuss abuse or other issues in your life. YouAreNotAlone.

If a parent has just dumped the child, for whatever reason, that's ParentalAbandonment; if they aren't paying attention, that's ParentalNeglect. If the parents refuse to discipline their kids, they are PushoverParents. Contrast MamaBear or PapaWolf (where ''others'' abuse the children and the parents abuse the abusers). AbusivePrecursors can be considered this on a metaphorical level. See HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood for when this is [[ExaggeratedTrope cranked up to absurd levels]] and played for laughs. BlackComedy is often connected in the comedic aspect of it, and a BigScrewedUpFamily may be involved if it is adult comedy. In keeping with the above note, some may call the show on it and say DudeNotFunny. See EvilMatriarch and ArchnemesisDad for characters who are beyond ''abusive'' and outright ''evil''. For parents who are mostly abused by their children, see PushoverParents.

** Ouranos and Cronos both made a practice of imprisoning their children at birth: Ouranos threw them in Tartaros or shoved them back in the womb, while Cronos [[SwallowedWhole swallowed them whole]]. Hephaestus was thrown off Olympus by one of his parents. According to Creator/{{Homer}}, it was Zeus. Other sources say it was Hera. [[SwallowedWhole Zeus also swallowed Athena's mother]] when he found out she was pregnant with Athena, because he'd heard a prophecy that her children would surpass him. [[LikeFatherLikeSon Sound familiar?]]

This includes parents who are emotionally, physically, or mentally abusive, or who neglectfully allow their children to be abused by others if they don't abuse the child themselves; [[PaedoHunt sexual abuse is typically treated as]] [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil a special kind of evil]]. Sometimes, the abuse at the hands of their parents becomes a FreudianExcuse for a villain. Other times, the character manages to [[DefiedTrope not grow up broken, bitter, and hateful]], and instead [[CharacterDevelopment a different and better person]] than the upbringing would incline one to think. TroublingUnchildlikeBehavior is often a tell-tale sign that things are not right at home.

Unfortunately, Abusive Parents are TruthInTelevision and a very sensitive topic for many, so please no RealLife examples - it is sufficient to say they do exist and they are all too common. It is horrible that children suffer cruelties at the hands of those who are supposed to be the most loving and trustworthy figures in their lives, and the damage can take years to undo, even with competent assistance (if it can be undone at all - often, the emotional scars will stay forever).
