Basically, this is a story about parents who do honestly love their kids, but are {{Workaholic}}s who yammer away in a cellphone constantly and [[DaddyDidntShow don't show up to their kid's science fair or soccer game or spelling bee]]. The child will feel the pain and misery of your (often ridiculously benign) neglect as he looks in the audience and sees you aren't there. It usually develops into AnAesop about not busting your hump for the boss man and instead spending time with your family, frequently by CuttingTheElectronicLeash.

* Shun of ''Anime/{{Endride}}'' is rather more proactive than most, so when his dad doesn't come home for his own birthday, Shun goes to his office to drag him back home. Ironically, the tables are turned when this leads to his getting TrappedInAnotherWorld, with his parents now probably missing him.

* Parodied in ''TheTick'' with the elderly supervillain The Terror and his son Charlie. Charlie accuses Terror of never spending any time with him when he was a child. Terror says he had to work, but also because Charlie was such a goody-two shoes, Terror didn't WANT to spend any time with him. For reference, Charlie became an insurance agent instead of a supervillain.

* "Someday Never Comes" by CreedenceClearwaterRevival, which not only invokes this trope with both the father's life and death, but states that the son ends up just like his father with the implication that '''his''' son will be the same way when he gets older.

* ''Franchise/SailorMoon'': Ami's mom is a workaholic doctor, but also a pretty good person who had to raise her daughter almost on her own after her divorce. She even laments in the [[Manga/SailorMoon manga]] that she would really love to spend more time with her kid, but she cannot. This is to the point where she doesn't show up at all in TheNineties anime. Likewise her DisappearedDad is a travelling artist (seemingly a wildlife painter) who communicates to her via letters and paintings but almost never actually shows up.
