* Eddie Storkowitz' parents on ''WesternAnimation/{{Birdz}}''. The mother is rather laid-back and supportive, while the father is somewhat stricter but never comes off as mean. Most episodes show Eddie generally getting along with his parents.

** All of the parents on ''Literature/{{Franklin}}'' seem to be this, though it's perhaps most easily noticeable with Franklin and Harriet's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Turtle, since they show up far more often than any of the other parents. It's very unusual for them to even raise their voices, yet they seem to have raised very nice kids on the whole in Franklin and Harriet. Mr. Turtle does very occasionally slip into BumblingDad characteristics, but otherwise has a good, level head and is also quite handy around the house. And Franklin likes that Mrs. Turtle always reads him two stories before bed, even when she's tired.

** Yang describes her and Ruby's mother Summer Rose as a "supermom", clearly having an extremely high opinion of her. It was only after Summer's disappearance (or possible death) that Yang found out that the woman she had believed to be her mother was actually her ''step''-mother; Yang's birth mother abandoned her and Ruby's father shortly after Yang was born.
** Ruby and Yang's father, Taiyang Xiao Long, finally appears in the Volume 3 finale. He stays by both girls' bedsides [[spoiler: as they heal from a coma and an amputation respectively]], bringing them meals, and is immensely relieved to have them back at home. [[spoiler: He promptly panics when he discovers Ruby left for Haven.]] [[spoiler: Volume 4 expresses this even further by having him show giddiness at getting an ArtificialLimb for Yang, watching over his eldest daughter with a look of helplessness over her HeroicBSOD, staying by her side even though he wants to go find Ruby and even gives her a small RousingSpeech. In fact, his bond is so strong with his kids that he's essentially VitriolicBestBuds with Yang.]]

** With regards to Blake, her mother Kali is a sweet woman who greets her daughter with a cuddle after not seeing her for many years and also supports her friendship with Sun, much to Blake's embarrassment. Her father Ghira meanwhile, though he is an OverprotectiveDad, he also very clearly cares about his daughter a lot.

* In ''Literature/TheRedAbbeyChronicles'', the protagonist mentions that her father gave the children his food portion during a hunger winter, and that her parents decided to send her away because they knew she's have enough to eat at the Red Abbey. She is shocked when a friend tells her that ''her'' father beat her.

** Speaking of which, Fate Testarossa Harlaown becomes this by ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikers'', adopting children like her who were raised in an abusive environment, such as Erio, Caro, Vivio, and Lutecia (until her mother woke up). In fact, the second ''[=StrikerS=]'' Sound Stage revealed that Fate put a lot of effort into [[InvokedTrope invoking this]] to avoid [[IAmNotMyFather ending up like Precia]]. Before she came, Erio was shown [[AllThereInTheManual in the supplementary manga]] to have been reduced to a WildChild that lashed out at anyone with his powers while Caro was exiled by her tribe for being too powerful and had lived on her own for a long time. Thanks to her, they were given a normal childhood, and when the BigBad tried to break Fate by pointing out that her adopted children being {{Child Soldier}}s made her [[NotSoDifferent no different]] from himself, her adopted children counters the breaking by pointing out that Fate didn't choose this path for them, they chose it themselves and all Fate did was raise them to be strong-willed enough for them to make their decision.

* They were only talked about on two or three occasions, but the parents of Kallian Tabris from DragonAgeTheCrownOfThorns are said to be this (or to have been, since her mother Adaia is dead). In fact, [[spoiler: King Cailan practically invokes this trope while dying, because she slapped his senses back into him so he could meet his end calmly, without being wrecked with guilt over having gotten his men killed.]] It is revealed that her father Cyrion [[spoiler: spent most of one night talking to Faren, the dwarven commoner, when Kallian dragged him over to her home, so he could get a good idea of who his daughter had gotten involved with.]]
