Not Acting Adult
Paul Wilson – Age 19 – Son still living at home.
Stacy Wilson – Age 38 – Divorced mother of Paul.
Aunt Sally – Age 36 – Sister of Stacy who is still single.
Background: Back when Stacy Wilson was pregnant with her son Paul there were some complications. Her son was born prematurely but was in relatively good health. Paul was a very small baby around 4 pounds so special care was needed. Moving ahead to the present time which is 1970 Stacy is divorced from her husband. She has been raising her son Paul alone since age 12.
Paul is now an adult who is 19 years old. He has remained small all his life. Mom and Paul still live in the family house which is now hers. It is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath, and single story home. The Wilsons live in St. Louis, Missouri in the suburbs. Aunt Sally is about to move in bedroom 3 to live with her sister and help out with Paul. At the same time she will be saving money.
As a result of being small Paul has been spoiled by his mother Stacy. For years she has catered to his wishes and given Paul about everything he wants. Being so small Paul had a bad time in school and with making friends. He is defensive due to being small and his behavior is not good. Behavior has grown worse the last few years so mom wants some help from her sister.
Paul Wilson was a much nicer boy years ago before things changed. Mom is not sure what to do to improve his manners and behavior. Stacy feels Paul is not acting like an adult. Full grown Paul weighs only 65 pounds and is just 4’ 2” tall. Mom made sure he ate good and got exercise growing up. Paul is healthy today. Stacy’s sister Aunt Sally can’t believe Paul is rude to his mother and out in public too. He uses his small size as an excuse not to look for a job. Aunt Sally is thinking Stacy should discipline Paul.
Chapter One: Today is Thursday, Aunt Sally is moving in with Stacy and Paul on Saturday. Aunt Sally is close with her sister Stacy. Both are big women who are around 5’ 9” tall and a slim 160 pounds. They exercise and stay in shape. Stacy has no need to work after the divorce. Her former husband was wealthy and so is Stacy.
Aunt Sally has been working part time as a waitress but presently is unemployed. She feels she can find a new job in St. Louis when the time comes. For now she has some savings and will help her sister with both the chores and taking care of Paul.
It is day 20 during the month of March. The colder weather is just about gone in Missouri. Usually a jacket or sweater is no longer needed. Paul is at home with his mother and they just sat down to have lunch. Mom cooks all the meals and does the dishes.
“I hope you like your chicken salad sandwich,” mom said, “I need to go grocery shopping and get some lunch meat.”
“I would rather have roast beef,” Paul complained, “this will do.”
“You are not very appreciative son,” mom stated, “I do a lot for you including cooking your meals and doing your laundry.”
“Gee, isn’t that what a mother is for?” Paul asked, “I don’t know how to cook or do the laundry.”
Not pleased with the conversation mom decides to stop lecturing. They enjoy lunch with a brownie for dessert. A glass of milk is drank by both with lunch.
“Yes honey, that is what a mother is for but you are an adult now,” Stacy stated, “please act like an adult and help around the house.”
“Yes mom, I am too small to mow the lawn but I keep my room clean,” Paul said in his defense.
“Your Aunt Sally is moving in on Saturday to help out,” Stacy said.
Mother explains further that Aunt Sally needs a place to stay to save on expenses. She lectures Paul again about his bad behavior and bad attitude. Mom wants Paul to be respectful to his Aunt Sally as well as herself. She warns Paul that things must change!
“Aunt Sally will help out with the household chores and help me take care of you sweetie,” mother continued. “She feels you need a little discipline so don’t upset her.”
“I am an adult but I will behave like I always do,” Paul insisted.
Mother is not believing he said this, she is always on him about some type of bad behavior or his laziness. No plans have been made other than to give Paul a chance to act like an adult. If not then some type of discipline will be needed. Being so small Paul better shape up or face some changes in his life.
Aunt Sally has told her sister there are ways to discipline an adult who needs it. She was not specific but will share a few ideas with Stacy after she moves in. Hopefully nothing will be needed to make Paul act like an adult. If one acts like a child they should be treated as one, which is Aunt Sally’s point of view.
Meanwhile Sally is packing at her apartment across town. She is having movers come over early Saturday morning. She will be packed by then and it is mostly boxes of her clothes and belongings. Her apartment is furnished so that all stays behind. Stacy has a bed and dresser in her third bedroom.
Aunt Sally has been thinking about Paul and how he treats his mother. She does not understand his bad attitude. Paul is spoiled and gets special treatment. Aunt Sally concluded Paul is just a brat. Sally has some rather unusual ideas about discipline. She thinks an adult who acts like a child should be treated like one.
Aunt Sally has read a few stories from dominant females about how to discipline a bad behaved male and these will be shared with Stacy.
