Disowned Parent

Go To

I'm stoked that I didn't know you
But, sucks you ain't give a fuck and consider a sperm donor now.
Tyler, the Creator, "Answer"

The inverse of I Have No Son! A person (who may be a child or an adult) disowns at least one of their parents.

The reasons for doing this can significantly vary. Their parent may be evil or abusive, or have abandoned them at a previous point. More sympathetic portrayals will usually portray it as a step in Delayed Family Acceptance or, in rare cases, the action of a Bratty Teenage Daughter.

This also may often happen because the character in question Hates Their Parent, but it doesn't need to. Also, plenty of hated parents are still in their child's life, whereas they are not in this trope. It's also a common outcome of a severely Broken Pedestal. Contrast You're Not My Father, which might be used regardless of whether the authority figure is an actual parent or not. Also contrast I Am Not My Father and Kids Punishing Parents, which might be one reason why a character might cut their parent out, but is not the only one.

It may lead to the character in question being a Self-Made Orphan. Also, it's totally possible for the character to only cut one parent out of their life — possibly due to the disowned parent being a cruel parent to the remaining parent's loving parent — so they are not necessarily without family. Most commonly a very extreme version of Calling the Old Man Out. They will usually try to replace them (successfully or otherwise) with a Family of Choice.

Emancipated Child is often a subtrope and one way in which this can occur. However, that trope refers to the legal process by which a child becomes separated from their parents. As such, it refers only to minors and does not necessarily reflect how the offspring feels about their parents. This trope refers to the emotional and personal decision to disown one's parents, which frequently doesn't involve emancipation and occurs only informally. See also Disowned Sibling, when someone cuts ties with their sibling.

Choosing to go no-contact with parents is a very common and controversial thing in real life, so no real-life examples, please!
