Should Daddy O Five count as this trope as well? I mean, come on, they played abusive pranks on their children and even lost custody of two of them because of this trope! They are even known throughout the internet because they invoked this trope! They should obviously be mentioned here.

We don't allow real life examples on this page. So no, we shouldn't.

Shouldn't be Ragyou in the article picture, 'cause she actually managed to displace Gendou Ikrai and Shou Tucker as the shittiest parents of all animé? Homer ain't got shit on her in that department.

Well, can you find an picture of her that so perfectly encapsulates the image of an abusive parent?

This question has been answered.

Just curious: for character pages, should this trope only be used for characters who are abusive parents, or can it also be used for characters who have abusive parents?

From someone who had a cold and emotionally distant and abusive mother, thank you for that last paragraph. I've been through therapy and have some truly good friends now, but it hurts to think of all those out there who don't realize they don't have to bear this burden alone.

Dad? File him under Domestic Abuse -Female on Male. Eventually mother walked out when she found a younger man than him -who died of a heart attack six months later. She tried to come back. Not happening. (The first time she pulled that was bad enough, and me and my sister weren't kids any more.)

Karma's a bitch.

What's the trope for when one of the parents is abusive to the other one?

I don't think 'raising your child without exposure to TV' should be mentioned, since that doesn't sound at all like abuse. I'd argue that some may see it as sheltering them, but there's certainly nothing wrong with not letting your kids watch TV. Think it should be taken off the page?

Considering that (contrary to popular belief) TV is not an essential for survival and health, I'd say calling "no TV for the kids" abusive is definitely stretching the definition of "abuse". I'd support this.

How come no-one's made a trope for the inverse of Abusive Parents?They do exist in fiction(such as Vicky from Fairly Odd Parents)

So, this troper, cub, described Joyce from Buffy The Vampire Slayer as the worst mother on tv since Livia Soprano (and compared her to Andra Yates in their edit reasons). Have not watched the show (I know, what am I doing on this site?) but I can still tell that this is a massive overreaction. Sounds like the character is oblivious, but that's pretty typical of parents in series that have The Masquerade.

Why on Earth was the neglect section of abusive parents removed?

Never mind. I found there was a separate section on negligence.

Hey, can the person who put the Sweden example for Financial Abuse explain what specifically happens when they turn 15? Do they have to pay all the fines? Do they become uninsurable? Both? Something else?
