George and Lynda, the parents of Peter and Wendy, live in a house full of technologically advanced machines. One of those being the Nursery. But when George and Lydia decide to turn off the Nursery for a break, the children, so attached decide that they have had enough, they act and the results are deadly.

"They walked down the hall of their soundproofed Happylife Home, which had cost them thirty thousand dollars installed, this house which clothed and fed and rocked them to sleep and played and sang and was good to them."
"The Veldt" by Ray Bradbury
"I wouldn’t want the nursery locked up,” said Peter coldly. “Ever.”""“I don’t think you’d better consider it any more, Father.”"
"You’ve let this room and this house replace you and your wife in your children’s affections. This room is their mother and father, far more important in their lives than their real parents."
George and Lydia Hadley have let technology replace them in their children’s lives and it will effect them.
"And suddenly they realized why those other screams had sounded familiar."
The setting also sets the conflict, because everything is all automated the kids get so attached so when George and Lynda took that away they where angry, they could not let the only thing they loved die.
Peter's comment show that he will go to far extincts to protect technology that he loves over his parents.
The theme of not letting technology replace parents is an example of what a conflict or disagreement could turn into if parents don't disciple and parent there kids.
#Parents over Tech.
