In the drama monologue from The Well Spoken play act, Frederick lets his wife know how fed up he is with his son’s behavior.
FREDRICK: Perfect. My timing was perfect. Have you noticed how our son can barely keep up with the other children? Huffing and puffing while the other kids run through the house and garden, without a second’s pause? When I last found him he was hanging on to the banister catching his breath. He’s been to the physician. We know the cause. But you and Margaret, you give in to his needs! And yet, no matter how much is discussed at length, no matter what the Doctors say, it goes over your heads! And so it continues, he continues to self-destruct and eat everything in sight. I never imagined all of us being so weak against a boy’s appetite.
Do you want to know what I am guilty of, Eleanora? You asked so here it is, I am guilty of allowing this to happen! My refusal to stop it sooner. Ignoring the fact that there really is a problem.
It won’t be a problem anymore, not whilst I’m around. Sometimes there is pain in change and we all must be willing to accept it, stay the course, until the poison is eradicated.
