** Alice gets Bryan to make the grades, but she never gives him a chance to develop his social skills or prepare for the real world. She never realized that it takes more than good grades to succeed in life.
** Alice's efforts do help Bryan become a success, but after focusing so much on hard work for so long, he becomes a MarriedToTheJob {{Workaholic}} who never gives her [[IWantGrandkids grandkids]].
** All of that hard work and pressure takes its toll on Bryan and he develops severe emotional or mental issues.

** Bryan's resentment of Alice causes him to put all of that studying she made him do to good use: He becomes an evil MadScientist who [[TakeOverTheWorld takes over the world]], and keeps Alice locked in a cell, [[LaserGuidedKarma forcing her to constantly do boring and tedious activities]], under threat of AgonyBeam should she take a break for longer than a few seconds.

** Alice genuinely thinks she is helping Bob by making him study. When she finds out all the pressure she has put him under, [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone she is horrified]] and does her best to back off.

Added DiffLines:

** Alice's own education stopped at the middle school level and she was unable to continue her studies because her parents needed her to find a job and help the family stay financially afloat. As a result of her own poor education, Alice doesn't want to see the same thing happen to Bryan.
