* In the series finale of ''Series/CornerGas'', Emma disapproves of Brent going into the city to preform stand-up comedy every week, believing that at his age he should be "stuck in a rut with a wife and kids, living the Hell ''we'' all lived". Bizarrely, Oscar is actually ''supportive'' for once, key word being "for once".
-->'''Oscar:''' Unbelievable, Emma! The boy has a chance to do something with his life and you wanna squash it! This is just like the time you burnt his letter of acceptance from college.\\
'''Emma:''' ''You'' burned that!\\
'''Oscar:''' Well... someone had to take over the family business!

* Michael's father in the ''KnightAndRogueSeries'' does not approve of his youngest son going off and playing KnightErrant. His first major attempt to force Michael to quit is to legally require him to become a steward, and when Michael still refuses he [[spoiler:has his son branded as a criminal and stripped of legal rights to try and eliminate all options other than being steward.]]

* Inverted, but good, by Creator/ShirleyJackson. Invited to write a children's book, she was provided with a list of acceptable vocabulary words. She saw ''getting'' and ''spending'', ''cost,'' ''buy'', ''supermarket'', ''post office'' -- but not ''magic'', ''wishing'' or ''Fairyland.'' Incensed, she wrote ''Nine Magic Wishes''. In the two books about her home life, ''Life Among the Savages'' and ''Raising Demons'', she allows her children's imaginations free rein.
--> ''... there are many groups of educators who feel that Fairyland is an unhealthy environment for growing minds, but in a choice between television (“television” was on the list) and Fairyland, I know where I would rather have my own children growing up.''

* While they're not related, Tsubasa and Angie from ''Manga/AsuNoYoichi'' fit this trope fairly well. Angie, TheCaretaker for Tsubasa, tries to keep anything that doesn't advance the latter's learning of martial arts away (such as manga), to the point where Tsubasa has a breakdown in one fight and basically cries IJustWantToBeNormal, after she experiences what its like to be a normal schoolgirl for one day.

* In ''OuranHighSchoolHostClub'' anime, Kyouya's father actually slaps him when he finds out exactly what his son's after-school club is about. In the manga, Tamaki's father forces the club to shut down briefly near the end, but it's subverted later when it's revealed that he likes the Host Club, and was only shutting them down as part of a plan to get his mother to step down as head of the company.

* ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'''s Genma Saotome is often depicted as this in FanFic as a [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation logical point of departure from Canon]], otherwise Ranma would have no [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation credible reason to break away from martial arts]] to do something else that the [[AuthorAppeal fanfic author finds more interesting.]] Canon Genma is actually a [[SubvertedTrope subversion]] as their mutual obsession with martial arts is practically the only interest Ranma and Genma have in common.

* ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'''s Genma Saotome often gets this in FanFic; it's a [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation logical extension]] of the character's canon attitudes. Most often used in [[DeconstructedTrope deconstructive]]/more realistic versions so that Ranma has a credible reason to break away from martial arts and try to do something else with his/[[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation her]] life, because supposedly he'd been bullied into his martial arts excellence unwillingly by Genma.

* ''WebAnimation/PokemonRusty'': Rusty's parents want him to work at their deli before he could "go to College and get a real job" as they consider Pokemon trainers little more than "pet owners". Adding to that, Rusty's father doesn't seem to like Pokemon in general, [[FantasticRacism he refers to them as "monsters"]], and dislikes Rusty's [[SmallTownBoredom disinterest in their unmarked home of Beige Town]]. Rusty's Pokemon actually agree he should stay at the deli, [[HeroicComedicSociopath but for different reasons]].
