* In the ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' episode "Dough Ray Me", this is Scrooge's rationale for not advancing Huey, Dewey or Louie their allowance - or giving Fenton Crackshell a raise. Scrooge claims that, if he gives them more money, they'll take money for granted, spend it foolishly, and end up homeless and begging on the street corner!

* ''Literature/{{Victoria}}'' has a particularly dark example, with the Christian dominionist ideologues ruling the [[EvilReactionary Northern Confederation]] using this reasoning to justify their [[CrushingThePopulace annihilation]] of Azania, a LadyLand, since women must be guided by men for their own good. The surrendered Azanians are reeducated into "real women" and freed of their "unnatural" feminist ideology, and can then look forward to marriage to a gentlemanly Confederation soldier and a quiet home life. Those who resist and cling to their old beliefs are made slave-concubines instead--And this, too, is said in so many words to be for their own good, since, unpleasant though this fate may be, it will surely strip away their delusion that women can be the equals of men and show them their proper place in the world.

* As is already mentioned here about ''Film/ButImACheerleader'', many parents take their homo/bi/pansexual and/or transgender children to "straight camps" or other places (such as private clinics or hospitals) to cure them of their "homosexual feelings" for this reason.
** Similar to the "applied behavioral analysis" treatment methods used to "cure" autism. It fails to cure autism but is '''highly''' successful at inducing post-traumatic stress disorder.
*** A time was when this would also be used to "cure" that debilitating ailment of sinistrality (aka left-handedness)
* European imperialism was justified by this trope, particularly during the Victorian era. Many Europeans saw themselves as having a sacred "duty" to bring "civilization" to all of the [[InformedFlaw savage and barbaric heathens]] of the rest of the world, whether they wanted it or not. Other races, especially in North America and Africa, were seen as overgrown children who needed to be taught the "proper" way to live.

* ''Series/BetterCallSaul'': Used by Chuck when he figures out how Jimmy gaslit him [[spoiler:by forging documents]] and lays it out to Kim, trying to turn her against him.
-->'''Chuck [=McGill=]:''' Yesterday morning was the worst professional humiliation of my life. A single transpositional error cost my client time and money, and permanently damaged my reputation. Then I realized, it wasn't an error. Not at all. A week ago last night, I was right there on that couch, barely conscious. And Jimmy showed up... ''[stands up from his chair]'' ...and he sent Ernesto away. My brother was going to take care of me. And in the dead of night, he went through my Mesa Verde files.
-->'''Jimmy [=McGill=]:''' All right, you know what? We don't have to listen to this-
-->'''Chuck [=McGill=]:''' She [Kim] does! ''[to Kim]'' You do, for your own good.
