[[HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood Then he'd get too tired, and he'd make us whoop ourselves]]\\
[[UpToEleven Then he'd chop me into pieces, and played frisbee with my brain]]\\

* ''Film/IVitelloni'': Francesco, Fausto’s father, loses his patience with his son by the end of the film.



* In ''Film/StandByMe'', the boys point out that if they go to find the dead body, their parents will know they snuck out of town to do so, and will "get hidings," but rationalize that nobody will care. Save for Chris, who casually admits that his AbusiveParents will "Hide him anyway" but admits that it would be worth it.

** ** The Mann family falls under this before Jo's intervention; Mom Melissa is especially guilty. They spank their children forcefully with wooden spoons, wooden forks, and their hands. Melissa explains their church advocates this, and constantly says, "Trust and obey" before spanking a child (while simultaneously saying "I forgive you" and spanking more). Melissa also has some disturbing things to say about Naomi in particular, such as, "I want to smack her across the mouth" and "I don't want her in my house."

** Jo actually called CPS on the Spivey family after the camera footage showed the father appearing to beat one of his children with a belt. The actual discipline took place off-camera, but the belt is seen beforehand and the child can be heard screaming.

* Just like in the comics version, Granddad of ''WesternAnimation/TheBoondocks'' does/threatens this often...Seeing his Franchise/IndianaJones-esque skills with a belt, you can't blame Riley for freaking and running like hell.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/TheLoudHouse'' fanfic ''{{Fanfic/Syngenesophobia}}'', after the sisters hospitalize Lincoln, Mr. Loud severly disciplines all of his daughters, topping it off with the threat to use this trope if they try to get out of the punishments he inflicted on them.

* In ''Film/YouthInRevolt'', Ray Liotta's character apprantly dealt with Nick this way before the start of the movie. Subverted in movie-proper.

* Subverted in ''Series/MalcolmInTheMiddle''. Lois calmly asserts that she will spank Malcolm if he does not remain grounded and stay on his cot, who was objecting as they were having to sleep in cots in a school gym (the neighboorhood was evacuated because of a chemical spill) and the punishment was not really applicable. When Malcolm disobeys her, she puts him over her knee, everybody else in the gym watching...And she gives him a light tap. The purpose of the "spanking" was not to punish him with pain, but with ''embarrassment''. This ends up backfiring as the soldiers overlooking the whole evacuation throw her out, because the other families thought she was going crazy.

* One (long forgotten) Australian sketch show parodied this. The strict father ordered his son to eat his sausages; the son repeatedly refused. The father began to take off his belt to hit the son with it, [[OverlyLongGag but the belt was so long]] that the show cut to other sketches before cutting back, and the father was ''still'' [[BrickJoke taking off his belt]].
