Contrast: ParentalAbandonment, OpenMindedParent. Compare: JewishMother and MyBelovedSmother. Can turn your child into a WellDoneSonGuy if all goes according to plan. If it goes pear-shaped, it can lead to a YouAreGrounded moment, or worse still, [[{{Angst}} teen angst]] or [[CoolPeopleRebelAgainstAuthority teen rebellion]]. In the worst cases, particularly in East Asia, the end result is [[DrivenToSuicide attempted suicide]], TheRunaway, the {{Hikikomori}}, or even [[TheDogBitesBack snapping out and committing violence against the parents]].

** It's hinted that Sora Takenouchi's mother, Toshiko, was like this before the girl was spirited to the Digital World. Add a well-intentioned but workaholic father who works in Kyoto and, poor Sora had huge identity issues that took quite a while to be resolved.

* In the anime of ''Manga/CaptainTsubasa'', Taro Misaki and his father Ichirou meet a nerdy kid whose mother is like this and refuses to let him join a local soccer team. The kid is clearly uncomfortable and really wants to join the team. [[spoiler: After a pep talk from Ichirou and witnessing the boy's interaction with the team kids, the mom gives in.]]

This trope is especially pervasive in East Asian families, due to the existence of the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imperial_examination Imperial examination]], a standardized test you could take in China that was absolutely necessary for a position as an ObstructiveBureaucrat, one of the cushiest and most well-paying jobs then available. (The topic of the test was the writings of and about the great philosopher Creator/{{Confucius}}, meaning that anyone who could read had a shot at a government job.) Many of the other nations in China's cultural shadow adopted this system, giving rise to the stereotype that all Asian parents are like this. Such parents have been given the name "Tiger Moms."

Moms", and specifically ''kyoiku mama'' (教育ママ) in Japanese. However, this parental figure is universally reviled by the current generation, leading to this becoming a DiscreditedTrope.

* ''MarmaladeBoy'': Kei's parents were like that at first, but more in the art fields since Kei was an excellent pianist. That led to Kei running away from his parents and become extremely selfish and possessive of Miki, the first real friend he's had. Later, though, they make amends.
* ''{{Paradise Kiss}}'': Yukari's mother Yasuko.
* ''FushigiYuugi'': Miaka's mother. The manga hints that she became like that after her traumatic divorce.
* Male example: Kyouya's father in ''OuranHighSchoolHostClub''.
* Shizuru Kuwabara of ''YuYuHakusho'' adopts this role for her younger brother Kazuma in the Three Kings Saga, wanting him to get a good education and job. From what we see of Kuwabara later (which [[OutOfFocus isn't much]]), she succeeded.

* ''ATreeGrowsInBrooklyn'': Katie Nolan is told by her immigrant mother that education is the key to rising in America, and to that end, she should make her kids stay in school longer than she did and read them a page a day from the Bible and the collected works of Shakespeare. How well this is or isn't working is a constant source of worry for her.

* In the Korean Drama "Sassy Go Go", Kwon Soo-Ah's mother is an extreme version of this, and could easily be the page image. She considers anything less than being the top ranked student is failure, severely chastises Soo-Ah for not getting a perfect score on an exam, forbids her from closely associating with the Real King members (or anyone else, really) and makes her focus exclusively on her studies, and pushes Soo-Ah to follow her own carefully laid out road map to get into an Ivy League college. With all this pressure, it is hardly surprising that Soo-Ah is such a messed up girl who spends most of the series undergoing increasingly rapid [[SanitySlippage Sanity Slippage]].

Contrast: ParentalAbandonment, OpenMindedParent. Compare: JewishMother and MyBelovedSmother. Can turn your child into a WellDoneSonGuy if all goes according to plan. If it goes pear-shaped, it can lead to a YouAreGrounded moment, or worse still, [[{{Angst}} teen angst]] or [[CoolPeopleRebelAgainstAuthority teen rebellion]]. In the worst cases, particularly in East Asia, the end result is [[DrivenToSuicide attempted suicide]], TheRunaway, the {{Hikikomori}}, or even [[TheDogBitesBack snap violence against the parents]].
