* This trope provides most of the conflict in ''{{WesternAnimation/Coco}}''. A kid named Miguel Rivera dreams of a career as a musician, but the rest of his family (who make shoes for a living) forbid him from it, due to a "ban on music" rule passed down by his great-great-grandmother, [[SinsOfOurFathers who was pissed off by her musician husband]] [[DisappearedDad (apparently) abandoning their family]].

* One episode of ''Series/PowerRangersDinoCharge'' introduces us to Shelby's father, a successful, clever businessman who owns a famous chain of ice cream parlors. Through the episode, Shelby and her dad constantly butt heads because he disapproves of his daughter's interest in dinosaurs and paleontology and would rather want her to focus on the family's ice cream business, much to her annoyance. By the end of the episode, he comes to terms with his daughter's own aspirations, however, and even gives her a dinosaur-shaped ice cream cake for her birthday.

* ''Film/TheHouseThatDrippedBlood'': In "Sweets for the Sweet", John forbids his daughter from any contact with other children, or even to have any toys. As it turns out, he does have some solid reasons for his incredibly strict parenting but, by the time these come out, it is far too late for all involved.

* In ''Manga/FairyTail'', the two main reasons why Lucy Heartfilia runs away from home to join the titular guild are because her father Jude won't spend time with her after her mother Layla's death and he wants reign in Lucy's impulses to become a wizard by having Lucy bear a son through an ArrangedMarriage. To do this, he recruits rival guild Phantom Lord to retrieve her, but it inadvertently leads to a guild war between it and Fairy Tail one year later. Lucy, however, has [[CallingTheOldManOut other ideas]] when the guild war is over.

* In ''Manga/FairyTail'', the two main reasons why Lucy Heartfilia ran away from home were because her rich snob father Jude wouldn't spend time with her, and because he disapproved her plans to become a wizard and join a guild, even after she proves to be a competent one. He wanted her to enter an ArrangedMarriage and [[IWantGrandkids bear a son]] [[HeirClubForMen so the Heartfilia family would have an heir]]; to do this, he hired Phantom Lord to retrieve her. Lucy, however, had [[CallingTheOldManOut other]] [[YouCantGoHomeAgain ideas]] once the battle was over.

See also WellDoneSonGuy and ToughLove. Compare EducationMama. A close-minded [[TheCaretaker Caretaker]] usually takes this attitude. Keep an ear out for "YouWatchTooMuchX." Contrast ObsessivelyNormal, wherein not only does the "fantasy" usually has a more direct effect on the people and the setting, but the parent trying to forbid it occasionally may [[FantasticRacism escalate]] [[MurderIsTheBestSolution a bit too much]] in their quest.

A father, [[MyBelovedSmother mother]], or [[ParentalSubstitute guardian]] (these last two are less common[[note]]Not to mention "father" provides for AddedAlliterativeAppeal.[[/note]]) disapproves of their child or ward reading "fairy stories", playing fantasy or sci-fi games, sports, and even such "useless" hobbies as astronomy, boxing, and ''being literate''. In extreme cases, anything the child likes that isn't directly and concretely tied to whatever it is their parent does for a living (or that they wants ''them'' to do for a living) is seen as an utter waste. The parent may even break, burn or sell anything of this nature their child owns, possibly even punishing or locking them up.
