Bear in mind that the parent doing the disowning might not be entirely a jerk; sometimes, the kid just crosses a line they shouldn't cross (especially if they've [[MamaDidntRaiseNoCriminal grown up wrong]]) and deserves being kicked out with all ties severed. Again, reconciliation isn't an impossibility, but since this kid's bitter and twisted anyway don't expect it happening any time soon. And rest assured that the parent is going to have to justify their actions to the audience explicitly anyway, since the act of disowning one's own flesh and blood for any reason is well, pretty harsh. A justification commonly seen in a CrimeAndPunishmentSeries is when the parents essentially disown the child due to a crippling drug habit that the child has plunged into; this is often accompanied with a justification about how "there's only so long you can watch or enable them to destroy themselves before you have to sever all ties."

* Often, TruthInTelevision. Especially when a child has proven a spendthrift, a sociopath, a substance abuser or criminal, staining the family name and reputation.
* VERY often happens when a child either resigns from family religion or marries outside the religion.

* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'':
** Jacques has always viewed Weiss' decision to become a Huntress as an act of rebellion, but grudgingly allowed it. After her outburst at the charity event embarrasses him, though, he reveals he has no intention of allowing her to follow Winter's path, implying that he disinherited Winter for Winter's own act of rebellion against him. [[spoiler:He also reveals that he's already disinherited Weiss. By keeping her a prisoner in her own home and publicly stating that Weiss has generously made Whitley the sole heir, no-one will care if Weiss is never seen in public ever again.]]
** Qrow disowned his sister due to her parenting style ([[MissingMom or lack thereof]]). They still keep in touch for the sake of exchanging information though.
