Learning to be Good

Learning to be GoodWhen George has an affair, his wife decides that he needs closer supervision.

George has been very naughty! When his wife learns that he has taken a mistress, she employs Parkdale’s services to help George learn how to behave.

After a humiliating trip to the supermarket, where he is dressed and treated like a little boy, George is determined to get his adult body back. But can he escape Parkdale’s infantilizing influence, before his wife returns to collect her utterly dependent, drooling baby boy?

George starts to eat the yellow pudding. It’s vanilla flavor, and he dimly remembers that this was his favorite flavor of pudding when he was a child.

I bet you’re not quite sure what’s going on.’ George looks nervously at Elaine. It was true, he couldn’t hide the fact that he was feeling slow.

‘Fact is,’ Elaine went on, ‘I’m much smarter than you. George, you need to listen to what I say, and you need to do whatever I tell you to do. Then everything will be okay.’…
