A rather awful DoubleStandard; the notion of a girlish wife in need of control and protection by a fatherly husband [[DeadHorseTrope rarely appears today and]] [[ValuesDissonance is largely perceived]] [[MostWritersAreMale as overtly sexist]], (similarly, the HenpeckedHusband scenario is considered nowadays to be a big TakeThat against the sole idea of a woman pulling the weight on the family-- see the description above) but this one persists. There are UnfortunateImplications on both sides-- men are told that they're useless and incompetent, at least in the realm of family life, and should really just let their wives take charge; women are told that they [[MenAreChildish can't expect their husbands to act like grownups]] and should just resign themselves to having to carry their husband's weight responsibility-wise and being regarded as the boring killjoy of the family for it.

* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'': Randy Marsh is very much the sort of irresponsible ManChild who needs this... but half the time wife Sharon [[GenreSavvy doesn't bother any more]]. More often, it's son Stan who gets sucked into the role of StraightMan to his dad's Crazy Scheme of the Week.

* ''Series/That70sShow'': Kitty sometimes acts like this toward Red. This is most evident in "Red Sees Red", where Kitty actually threatens to ''quit her job'' to keep an eye on Red and protect her kids from his wrath.

* In ''Manga/DragonBall'', [[{{Tsundere}} Chi-Chi]] treats her husband [[IdiotHero Son Goku]] very much like this. However, it could be subverted, as the fact that Goku is a phenomenally powerful alien Martial Artist makes this relationship look more equitable than most other examples -- Chi-Chi "takes care" [[{{Housewife}} of Goku at home]], Goku "takes care of her in return"... [[ChronicHeroSyndrome by saving the world on a regular basis]]. To say nothing of when Goku actually does get de-aged to a child. Also Goku's married life isn't that explored in the story, what with him either dying or away fighting aliens.
