I can think of plenty of bad parents with a parent being terrible
as a plot point. It's more common in realism than in fantasy but
Robin McKinley's Deerskin comes to mind. What I think is
interesting about DWJ parents, though is that they are often
utterly crappy but that really has nothing to do with the plot.
The are not stories about child abuse, they are just stories with
crappy parents.
