* Ollie from Creator/KevinSmith's ''Film/JerseyGirl'' ended up as a single father when his wife died in childbirth, he then lost his job when screwing up at work from the overloaded stress soon after. He then spends seven years working as a manual laborer, living at his dad's place, raising his daughter pretty damn well in fact but then he gets to thinking he wants his old public relations job back. Cue struggle to convince his family, cue arguments with daughter who doesn't want to move, cue page quote ([[FromBadToWorse wow!]]), cue moment where, after meeting with incidental stranger (who in this case is Creator/WillSmith, not played by, ''is'' Creator/WillSmith) realizes he should run back and attend his daughter's musical performance instead of going to his job interview.

** Regina wanted a child. Wanted one badly enough to [[spoiler: kill one man and try to ''take'' his kid. The kid narrowly escaped]].

She chronically neglected him, use {{Gaslighting}} to try and get him to ignore the town's weirdness, drug him to a shrink to try and keep him in line.

** Rumpelstiltskin's dad? Habitual drunk, thief, and gambler who dropped him off with the local seamstresses while he stole enough to get drunk and only picked up his kid when he had to. He described having a child to being saddled with a parasite that devoured his hopes and dreams. [[spoiler: So, the first opportunity he got when he arrived in Neverland? Try to kill off his kid and accept the island's gift of returning him to boyhood as Peter Pan.]]
** Emma was raised by DepartmentOfChildDisservices, shuffled from one of these to the next, foster "parents" who were only out for a paycheck and hated the part about having to take care of a kid to get the paycheck.

*** This is an interesting example of this being self-inflicted. Aberforth was taking care of Ariana during this time, but Albus actually ''insisted'' on him doing so, so Aberforth can finish his studies. Albus was more angry about feeling his potential being squandered, but he also cared for his brother and sister and thus wanted Aberforth to finish Hogwarts.
