MyWayOrTheHighway. When the ''{{plot}} of a story itself'' seems to be using this, you have the TheoryOfNarrativeCausality.

* In ''EternalSonata'', a boy witnesses Polka using magic to heal a man (who promptly runs for his life as soon as he is able). He's amazed by her glowing, and his mother pulls him away, telling him not to go near people who glow like that. He asks why. Cue the trope. (In the world of the game, magic is [[spoiler:almost]] always a side effect of a fatal illness. It's thought to be contagious, thanks to a rumor.)

* In ''ErinBrockovich'', the titular character reveals to a mother that a corporation had hidden the fact that her home and water supply is contaminated by a deadly toxic waste. The mother looks outside in horror at her kids in a pool and realizes that they are literally neck deep in dangerously polluted water and runs to get them out. When the kids ask why they had to get out, she yells "Because I said so!" guessing correctly that explaining toxic waste poisoning to children under 10 years old is as counterproductive as it is pointless.

* The DrugsAreBad episode of ''HomeImprovement'' had Tim and Jill telling Brad that yes, they grew up in the sixties, and at the very least Jill tried it--and ended up in a hospital due to a laced batch. Their point was softer than usual for this trope, in that they were more concerned about the same thing happening to Brad than him simply doing it, and that he worked too hard for his collegiate and sports future to throw it away for drugs. Another episode, dealing with religion, went the other way--Tim says he doesn't mind whatever Randy thinks with regards to religion (as the most intellectual of the Taylor children is beginning to abandon the church, though not his faith), as long as "your butt's in that pew" on Sundays.

* ''TheCosbyShow'': The pilot episode famously saw Cliff call out his son, Theo, for his consistently poor grades at school. Cliff told his son, quite bluntly, that he was going to try harder at school "because I am your father. I brought you into this world, and I can take you out!" (This drew laughs and applause from the live audience.)

** It's also possible the parent has become GenreSavvy enough to realize that children in general and ''their'' children in particular are born [[RulesLawyer Rules Lawyers]], so giving a ''reason'' why will only result in a barrage of objections, each of which they're going to have to argue tooth-and-nail. Sometimes it's best to just refuse to play and go with the Unanswer, because this limits the possible objections pretty much to "It's not fair!" which has a built-in response ("LifeIsntFair.")
