McClean basically says what most readers suspect. Their parents have spoiled the children. The whole family lives a life of complacency since they have purchased this house. George and Lydia have abdicated their parenting responsibilities to the house. The children have no structure or boundaries in their lives. There is no meaningful communication within the family. The house has made them emotionally disattached.
