George has an authoratarian parenting style, which is characterized by his strict rule and harsh punishment without reasonable explanation to his children. This parenting style combined with a lack of warmth and nursing lead to his tragic ending. Though he is generous to his child in his buying an exorbitantly expensive nursery to "help with their neurosis", deep inside he considered his children as his subordinate, his possesion and something not to be treated seriously. Quote: "Children are  carpets,  they should be  stepped on
occasionally? We've never lifted a hand. They're insufferable - let's admit
it." George and his wife (who said their children "act ridiculously") never stand in their children's shoes and feel their hatred, instead they impose their thoughts on the kids because they think their just "children" to be ruled. Finally, George's abrupt switching off the house intensifies the children's hatred, this leading to their revenge and his own tragedy.
