* Especially in well-developed countries it seems that especially ''parents'' think of teachers as this. Asking a teacher about their worst experience with a parent will most likely bring up things like the parents expecting the teacher to ''raise'' their child, including teaching them about very basic things like table manners or conversation rules.

* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'': Occasionally parodied with Mr Garrison, who has given terrible/misguided advice (to Stan, when he was worried about his gay dog Sparky), shown little concern for his students' problems and mocked them for it (when he found out Stan was being beaten up by his sister and not one of his parents), or "helped" them as part of his own, not so altruistic agenda (joining the intervention to send Cartman to Fat Camp "just so (he) could see the look on (Cartman's) face".

** Also spoofed in "Eek, A Penis!" when Cartman teaches at an InnerCitySchool in a parody of ''Film/StandAndDeliver''. He encourages his students to lie and cheat shamelessly, and counsels a tearful teenaged girl who has just discovered that she is pregnant to have an abortion, which is "like cheating ''life itself''!"

* Mr. Feeny on ''Series/BoyMeetsWorld''. He tries to avoid it in the early shows, imparting life lessons begrudgingly outside of the classroom. After Mr. Turner [[ChuckCunninghamSyndrome disappears between seasons]], Feeny fits this trope much more readily, having given up any semblance of trying to maintain a professional distance in his relationships with the main cast of students (to the point that, when he resists telling them he loves them in the GrandFinale, none of them believe him). It gets to the point that he gets upset after an incident involving Cory pushing his father because nobody sought his advice about it.
