* ''Film/TheSecretGarden'': While Maggie Smith's Medlock certainly threatens to box Mary's ears, she never actually strikes her. She slaps Martha, but she's old enough to not be considered a child.

* King Hamdo, the mad tyrant in ''Anime/NowAndThenHereAndThere'', uses this trope to his advantage; he employs an army of children so his enemies will be hesitant to fight back. Unfortunately, he also utilizes the child soldiers as [[WeHaveReserves war fodder]].
** This was based on RealLife examples like the Lord's Resistance Army in Uganda.

** After seeing what happened to the Targaryen children during Robert's Rebellion, Ned does not want to see history repeat itself. While warning Cersei to take the children and run might have been the noble thing to do, it wasn't the ''smartest'' thing to do. Ironically, this action alone did not result in his death: Cersei never intended to kill him, merely send him to the Night's Watch. He was finally killed on the whim of a boy-king, the very person he had intended to spare. The reason for him holding to this belief is [[spoiler:his fear for his nephew Jon Snow's safety, who he raised as his own child. Robert Baratheon wanted to kill all of Rhaegar's offspring, which if the truth were revealed, would include Jon as well, who is the hidden son of Lyanna Stark -- Ned's sister -- and Rheagar Targaryen.

* Silver Spoon of ''FanFic/BadFutureCrusaders'', despite being a burgular ''and'' an assassin for hire who started out as a BoxedCrook for comitting some undisclosed crime, is show to have a ''serious'' soft spot for children. Not only does she express disgust for a fellow BoxedCrook who was in prison for killing his child and point out that she planned to kill him afterward for it, she also seems to be genuinely fond of the young colt Clear Rivers.

* After subverting this in its first half-hour, ''Series/BattlestarGalactica2003'' later justifies it in that the Cylons want Baby Hera alive, and did their best to take care of her, despite having no prior experience in childcare and in general being lousy at it. Also, Leoben's psychological torture of Kara Thrace on New Caprica included leaving her alone with a child she believed was a half-Cylon hybrid. When Kara locked herself in a room to avoid the kid, the kid hurt herself and Kara's instincts as a human being overcame her hatred for the Cylons and she came to the kid's aid. No, Kara's not the villain, but then again BSG doesn't really have villains. Also, Cylons don't have kids: the toddler was a human girl they'd kidnapped.
