A question about Gods, Children, and Devouring

Kronos devoured his children. Zeus devoured Athena (kind of). So there's a definite history of gods devouring their children.

But there doesn't seem to be any mythological cases of children devouring their parents (to gain their power, or whatever).

Which seems weird to me, because I can't let any of my fingers near Gideon without him attempting to chew them off!
