** Played straight in "Smoke on the Daughter" where Marge has Lisa enroll in a ballet class to make her live out Marge's older and failed dream of becoming a ballet dancer. This is particularly {{lampshade|Hanging}}d when Marge describes her vision of "seeing her little Margie dance", much to Lisa's annoyance. Becomes HilariousInHindsight or HarsherInHindsight considering the instructor for Lisa's dance class in earlier episode "The Last Tap Dance in Springfield" bluntly tells her to not to live out her dreams through her child.

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': It is revealed that Sadie's mother [[MyBelovedSmother Barb]] does this ''every single time'' Sadie expresses the slightest interest in sports or the performing arts. Played with in that Barb genuinely does love her daughter, but has a bad habit of "taking over everything" and pushing Sadie to do more than she's comfortable with, rather than letting Sadie do it her way. The worst part is that Barb genuinely didn't realize she was actually doing anything wrong until Sadie finally [[CallingTheOldManOut called her out on it]].
--> '''Barb:''' I just wanted everyone to see how talented my daughter is!\\
'''Sadie:''' ''This'' isn't your daughter!

** If Pokemon trainers can be included in this, then Tammi the cheerleader from the Johto league anime definitely counts. She once was strict but gentle to her Politoed and her other Pokemon, but as she let her pride and stress get to her head prior to a competition, she became bitchy and demanding and furiously berated them for any mistakes. It took a brief BreakTheHaughty and a harsh call-out from Misty to stop doing this.
