What dependence on technology can lead to
When parents spoil their children, it can have irreversible consequences.
The technology filled house
"The house is wife and mother now, and nursemaid."
"Why don't we shut the whole house off for a few days and take a vacation"
"Too much love never spoils children. Children become spoiled when we substitue "presents" for "presence" -Anthony Witham
Spoiling of the children
"I sensed only that you had spoiled your children more than most."
The quote suggests that since the house is a technology base it has taken over the parents chores and the kids, which suggests that spoiling your kids or spoiling yourself by using technology can affect you physicaly and mentally.
In my evaluation, conflict develops the theme the most. I said this because the conflict of the parents spoiling Peter and Wendy when it came to technology impacted the theme.
The quote tells the readers that the dad started getting the idea that the kids were too connected to technology and how him and his wife hadn't realized the fact that they were spoiling their kids.
This quote impacted the theme because since the parents spoiled peter and wendy. Peter and Wendy didn't want to do things because their house did everything for them.
