Example using “The Veldt”

George has spoiled his children and now realizes that something is wrong with their behavior. He finally wants to start disciplining them but it might

be too late. He wants to shut

off the house.

George tells Peter that he “won’t take threats from my son.” But it seems like he doesn’t really follow through enough with discipline even after he knows his kids are deeply troubled.

George Hadley

The psychiatrist that comes over to see the nursery tells George he used to be Santa to his kids giving them everything they ever wanted, but when he started to say no he is now Scrooge. He has let the children down in some way, and now they are getting him back for it.

The short story doesn’t mention his appearance, other than to say that he drinks a little more each night, and smokes a little more each day. He must be in his late thirties early forties as his kids are 10.
