* In ''WesternAnimation/AsToldByGinger'' Ginger's mom Lois forbids her pre-teen daughter things like using makeup and shaving her legs, but it's immediately shown that Lois have a whole bathroom full of beauty products that she keeps locked. This may be because Lois believes that Ginger is ''too young'' to be using those things.

-->'''Rancisis''' That is what concerns me. To walk the path of the Jedi, one's spirit must be strong. That requires discipline. And he has often disobeyed you, has he not Master Obi-Wan?
-->'''Yoda:''' Did you not disobey me from time to time in your youth, Master Rancisis?
* In ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'', Anakin Skywalker, in trying to train his padawan, Ahsoka Tano, often has to teach her not to do the very things which defined his character in the prequel trilogy (and to some extent still do in the series itself). In the pilot movie, it's even said that the Jedi Council paired them together hoping that working with someone even more reckless than him would force Anakin to be more cautious.

* The ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'' episode "Ken 10" had Ben's future self Ben 10,000 show examples of this. He informs his son Ken that saving the world isn't kid's stuff when he himself has been doing so since he was 10 years old. He also asks where his son gets his attitude after he lashes out like he did when he was 10 years old. Both occasions are lampshaded by Ben's grandfather Max giving a scornful look when Ben is hypocritical.

* ''{{Deadpool}}'' has a case of this with his daughter, Ellie. Wade is a mercenary, and has killed or beaten up his fair share of people for little more than annoying him. He's mentioned having killed people for things as small as playing bagpipes, or putting tissue on the roll upside down. Sometimes, he will beat up people for calling him out on something, such as stealing a man's motorcycle, and threatening to kill him when he protested. But with Ellie, he doesn't want her fighting. She's been getting into many fights since she changed schools, and Wade tells her to let a teacher know if kids are bullying her. The recent chapter ends with Deadpool getting a text to come to the school because his daughter's been in another fight. Next chapter preview pages show him with Ellie in the Principal's office, visibly not happy with her.

* The teaser to the ''WesternAnimation/GarbagePailKidsCartoon'' episode "An Egg-citing Adventure" had a pair of children being warned by their parents from off-screen not to watch too much television because they'll turn into couch potatoes. We then see that the kids' parents have literally become potatoes sitting on a couch.

** Aegon V Targaryen (great-grandfather to the Mad King, Aerys II)is also an example. Due to being the fourth son of the king, he was able to marry Betha Blackwood for love. However, when he did ascend to the throne (earning the title Aegon the Unlikely), he arranged for all of his children (even the unlikely) to marry politically advantageous partners. All but one of his children rebelled against these arrangements, causing many great houses to feel slighted. His heir abdicated the throne for his love Jenny of Oldstones (angering the Baratheons enough for them to rebel), his second son secretly married and consummated with his sister (angering both the Tullys and the Tyrells), and his final son preferred the company of Ser Jeremy Norridge and ultimately refused to marry Olenna Redwyne (the Queen of Thorns). Poor Rhaelle is the only child that obeyed her father and married Lord Baratheon's heir to ease tensions. It becomes ironic because the only child that obeyed Aegon V births Robert Baratheon, the man who ultimately ends the Targaryen rule of the seven kingdoms during his rebellion.

* Minor example in ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsCloneWars''. When a suggestion is made to forego Anakin's trials and promote him early, the one arguing the most against it is Jedi Master Oppo Rancisis:
-->'''Rancisis''' That is what concerns me. To walk the path of the Jedi, one's spirit must be strong. That requires discipline. And he has often disobeyed you, has he not Master Obi-Wan?
-->'''Yoda:''' Did you not disobey me from time to time in your youth, Master Rancisis?

* ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' has a moment when Gilgamesh [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20030314 jumps in to play corrida]] with what amounts to a small locomotive with legs and arms, giving his father time to analyze its structure. Klaus [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20030324 roars]] at him for taking an unnecessary risk, but Jägermonsters [[BoisterousBruiser eagerly express]] approval when they see a {{Badass}} performance, so right at the next page a Jäger sergeant quietly tells Gil that Klaus himself "doz crazy schtupid sctoff like dot ''all de time''". Of course, as they both are {{mad scientist}}s with [[ChronicHeroSyndrome chronic anti-hero syndrome]], it wasn't likely to be the craziest for either.

* In one of the Literature/BerenstainBears books, there's a mild version involving a school dress code. The kids adopt obnoxious new fashions, and due to an escalating power struggle between the acting principal who keeps making new rules and the kids using LoopholeAbuse, it looks like the school will be going to uniforms... until Grandma Bear defuses the situation by hauling out photos of Papa and Mama Bear in their ludicrous Seventies attire.
