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). 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.

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.

[[folder:Pro Wrestling]]
* Prior to awareness campaigns of the 1980s, a child "physical abuse"-type promo [[HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood was often played for laughs]]. More common with regional promotions that had their own syndicated TV programs, a heel wrestler or tag team would seriously and in a normal but concerned tone of voice deliver a promo recounting a supposed meeting with a sad-eyed boy or girl, who is crying because (s)he can no longer take his/her father's physical abuse, the wrestler then asking the child if he'd go live with his/her mother to which the boy claims she beats him/her also, then asking who he'd like to live with, to which the kid says, "I wanna go live with (whatever face wrestler/tag team said heels are currently feuding) ... because he/they don't beat nobody!" ... with the heel wrestler's demeanor suddenly turning from somber to mocking as he delivers the punch line.
* [[Wrestling/VinceMcMahon Vince [=McMahon=]]] often acted this way toward his son Wrestling/ShaneMcMahon, daughter [[Wrestling/StephanieMcMahon Stephanie [=McMahon=]]], and his [[{{Kayfabe}} out-of-wedlock "son"]] Wrestling/{{Hornswoggle}} in angles.
** When Shane returned to RAW on February 22, 2016, people at the stadium heard something [[https://youtu.be/gLir-eIPOfs that was censored from the TV broadcast]].
--->'''Vincent''': ''(Into the mic)'' Good, because I have one last opportunity- ''(further away, [[IsThisThingStillOn but still audible via mic]])'' to give you a [[PrecisionFStrike fucking]] beating.
* Wrestling/{{Raven}} claimed that both of his parents beat the crap out of him. Wrestling/CMPunk also said he had issues with his dad, and that he was going to beat Raven because he saw his father in Raven. Some cycle there, huh?
* Toward the end of 2005, ''Raw'' wrestler [[Wrestling/TheWorldsGreatestTagTeam Shelton Benjamin]] began losing most of his matches. It wasn't long before his overbearing "Momma" (actually actress Thea [=Vidale=] in "granny" glasses and a muumuu) showed up on television to reprimand him, threatening to beat him (just as she supposedly did when he was a boy) if he didn't start winning matches. Benjamin began cheating to win or allowing Momma Benjamin to cheat for him, thus turning heel.
* Wrestling/CheerleaderMelissa would joke about how her rival, "Sweet" Saraya, would treat her kids and declared she was going to beat [[Wrestling/{{Paige}} Britani Kight]] in her mother's steed when they met in Wrestling/{{SHIMMER}}.
* During his early hype vignettes, Wrestling/BrayWyatt said his daddy was a mean man who made him work on his shrimping boat instead of going to school. Bray [[KillItWithFire set fire]] to his dad's boat - and implied that [[SelfMadeOrphan his dad died in that fire]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Animation]]
* In ''WebAnimation/PonyDotMov'', Pinkie claims that her father forces her to shove glass up her vagina, [[spoiler: but it's a bold-faced lie, made because Pinkie felt nobody was paying attention to her]].
* In ''WebAnimation/{{Nameless}}'', it's heavily implied that [[spoiler:Miller's]] mom molested him, which could possibly be the reason why he's so [[AxCrazy screwed up.]]
* In ''WebAnimation/AlfredsPlayhouse'', Alfred's parents were very neglectful of him, tried to drown him in the bathtub, and he is the result of an unsuccessful abortion. His abuse is the reason why he's so crazy.
* Many of the parents seen in "[[YouAreGrounded Grounded]]" Website/GoAnimate videos will ground their kids for insanely long periods of time at the slightest provocation. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RpvK9panYYE Starting crying over scary dreams]]? Grounded for "Triple Infinity" because you aren't allowed to have nightmares. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ZKyMe4-PnA Accidentally left the faucet running at school]]? Not only do you get expelled, but you also get grounded [[SarcasmMode just because your parents love you so much]]. In a few instances, they'll even celebrate sending the kid to their room by throwing parties or going out to Chuck E. Cheese's without them.
* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'':
** 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.
** There's also Mercury, whose father is all but stated to be an alcoholic who regularly beat him [[spoiler:and is the reason [[AnArmAndALeg he lost his legs]]]].

child abuse.
** Jokers are frequently SelfMadeOrphans.
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?]]
** Adarins' parents are straight up evil.
** Saddes' dad
Greek mortals abuse their children just as often in myth. For example, Echetus gouged out his daughter's eyes, chained her in a cellar, and made her grind iron chunks to dust. Acrisius locked his daughter Danae in solitary confinement to prevent her from having children, and then threw her in a box and dumped her in the sea when she got pregnant from Zeus. Mythical women suffer various physical punishments and sometime death for getting pregnant out of wedlock, even when they were raped. Beating kids barely even gets mentioned in Classical Greece, except i.e. when comedian Creator/{{Aristophanes}} mocks moral relativists by depicting them as opposed to beating.

Sometimes, a parent will go as far as to kill the child in question, in which case this is OffingTheOffspring. In other cases, the parent's abuse occasionally drives the offspring to ''snap'', commit Revenge and finally kill ''them'', thus becoming a SelfMadeOrphan. CallingTheOldManOut occurs when a fed-up child retaliates with a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech. If the child gets out of the broken family and forms healthy friendships, but reacts badly when their abusive parents show up again, well, FriendsAreChosenFamilyArent.
