* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'': After Dean and Lisa break up, Ben tricks them into meeting one another again for a date in an attempt to bring them together again. It doesn't work, and Dean even lampshades the situation but irritably telling Lise that they were 'Parent Trapped'.

* Subverted in ''{{Frasier}}'': Frederick seems to be trying to do this to Frasier and Lilith, but he's actually [[MagnificentBastard purposely trying to make them realize he's doing this, in order to make them think he really wants them to get back together, and thereby make them so guilty for not getting back together that they'll buy him a racing bike he wants.]] They manage to thwart him at the last moment, but damn if that's not impressive for a thirteen-year-old.

Maybe they run away, forcing the parents to put everything aside to find them. Maybe they resolve the argument by using their Disney exact child logic and showing the adults just how silly their fight is. Either way, by the end of the episode/film, the children have resolved their parents' problems and the [[SnapBack status quo is restored]].

Maybe they resolve the argument by using their Disney exact child logic and showing the adults just how silly their fight is. Maybe they pull the TwinSwitch to become TheMole in the other's family (like the TropeNamer), or maybe they will use HomemadeInventions and their HighSchoolHustler skills for a ZanyScheme.
