* ''[[Fanfic/EakinsHardReset Hard Reset]]'' features Twilight dithering on whether or not to come out to her parents. She finally decides to see what would happen -- after all, GroundhogDayLoop. She does ... and the response? They already knew, and had talked about it, deciding to let her reveal it in her own time. 'We found out a few months after you moved to Ponyville. I was cleaning up in your room and I found a box under your bed. Full of... magazines.'

The alternatives are not that much better: OverprotectiveDad, EducationMama, HandsOffParenting, or even outright ParentalAbandonment. Compare ParentalObliviousness, where the secret still has to be kept- but it's strangely easy. See also DotingParent, MilhollandRelationshipMoment, ReasonableAuthorityFigure.

** Daria's own father Jake is a slightly saner example. When Trent's girlfriend showed up at Daria's house looking for him, Jake at first mistook her to be Quinn's date. He just shrugged and commented, "Huh. I guess I really ''don't'' know my kids," clearly not bothered by the idea that his daughter may be bisexual or a lesbian.

* ''Webcomic/CheckPlease'' has Bad Bob, Jack's father. Although the name, he is a very supportive father through his son's [[spoiler: rehab and after that]], ultimately, during Jack's graduation even telling him to [[spoiler: "go really say goodbye" to Bittle, whom he was in love with]]. He seems to be the only one to play it straight, though as Bittle's father is implied to be very conservative and Shitty and his family do not agree on most ideas.

* Mr. and Mrs. Dunkel from ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' are a perfect example. After Elliot is accidentally transformed into a girl, he breaks into a government facility looking for a cure and accidentally clones himself in the process. When he brings the resulting OppositeSexClone back home, his punishment is to be allowed only one brownie after dinner, and that's [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2003-02-10 only because he lied to his parents about his plans for the evening]]. Meanwhile, the clone goes unpunished because she wasn't created until AFTER Elliot lied and therefore can't be held accountable for his actions.

* 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]].]]

* The parents of the three main protagonists of KissXSis take this UpToEleven and are ridiculously understanding about Keita's love life. They are completely fine with both pseudo-incest and student-teacher romance (which even the teacher in question finds disturbing). They also permit (and sometimes even encourage) their children's not-so-innocent games. The only time they oppose their kids' decisions is when Keita talks about marrying both his step-sisters, which they don't do because they are morally opposed to it, but because of the Japanese legal status of polygamy.
