* ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'''s parents are completely supportive of their daughter's {{supervillain}}-fighting activities and don't bat an eyelid over her flying halfway around the world to stop Dr. Drakken's latest scheme and risk life and limb in the process, so long as she's doing well on [[WakeUpGoToSchoolSaveTheWorld the home front]]. Dating boys, though, her father [[OverprotectiveDad isn't so happy with]]. This also extends to Kim's younger twin brothers, Jim and Tim. Their parents are apparently completely okay with them blowing up the garage with their experiments (though it's somewhat justified in that Mr. Possible, their father, did just that when he was their age.)

Kim's mom is completely supportive of her having a relationship with Ron, Kim's childhood friend and partner in crime fighting, even encouraging their relationship.

* In ''Manga/MyMonsterSecret'', Asahi's parents are stunningly open-minded, accepting not only the fact that their son's girlfriend is a [[FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire half-vampire]], but that [[spoiler:she's already pregnant with their daughter thanks to how vampiric blood-drinking works in this setting]]. As for Youko's parents, her mother was a ShipperOnDeck from the beginning, and while her father was an OverprotectiveDad for a while, [[spoiler:Asahi won him over with his honest and heartfelt devotion to Youko, and when he's told about the pregnancy he's perfectly calm and understanding.]]

* Hunter in ''Film/{{Blockers}}'' is well aware that his daughter Sam is gay, even before she realises herself, and is completely OK with it. Of the three parents who try to stop the sex pact, Hunter is the only one doing it not because of his own flaws but because he doesn't want Sam to sleep with a boy just because she thinks she has to.

* Back in the original ''[[DigimonAdventure Digimon]]'', Izzy's parents take well to Tentomon once they're introduced, and his mother even jumps into linking {{Cupid}} to a Digital World prophecy despite not knowing the Digital World existed until recently. The trope is oddly [[InvertedTrope Inverted]] when [[spoiler: Izzy himself finds out his parents' long-kept secret that he's [[HappilyAdopted adopted]], and reveals he'd suspected it already, [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming still loves them and considers them very much his real parents]].]]

** Barb Miller -- mother of Sadie Miller -- starts off as a mix of StageMom and MyBelovedSmother, but becomes more open to Sadie's wishes to live her own life once Sadie starts calling her out on her controlling behavior. However, we also see a more negative side to this in season 4. [[spoiler: When Sadie doesn't come home one night, Barb doesn't start to worry until the next day, when Steven tells her that Sadie was ''already headed home'' when he saw her on the night of her disappearance]].

[[spoiler: When Sadie doesn't come home one night, Barb doesn't start to worry waits until the next day, day to look for her, proclaiming that Sadie is old enough to decide whether she sleeps at home or not. This leads to a MAJOR OhCrap when Steven tells her that Sadie was ''already headed home'' when he saw her on the night of her disappearance]].

* Kagome's mom, grandpa, and brother are all very accepting of Kagome's time-traveling to fight demons in the feudal era in ''Manga/InuYasha''. They seemingly think [[YouCantFightFate it's better to accept and support Kagome's unavoidable destiny]] - Mrs. Higurashi is GenreSavvy enough to even buy presents for the rest of the group.

When her brother asks Inuyasha for romantic advice, he was shocked to learn that they had never told each other they were in love.
