Storyboard Text

  • Ashton Henderlite
  • The Veldt
  • Technology
  • Some children are spoiled and it is not their fault, it is their parents. -Rolad Dahl
  • Setting: A technology based sci-fi home
  • The children are spoiled with all the machines in the house and become very attached to them, specifically the nursery. This supports the idea that spoiling children can have lasting effects. 
  • In “The Veldt”, Ray Bradbury creates an example of what technology can do to children. The Hadleys have spoiled their children with technology and the children have grown to love the technology as they should love their parents. The children no longer respect their parents and after their father locks the nursery they kill both their parents.
  • George Hadley
  • The quote tells the reader that the Hadleys have spoiled their children, and as a result they no longer respect their parents. This situation supports the idea that because their parents have spoiled them, they now have lost their respect and love for their parents.
  • Spoiling children can have lasting consequences.
  • Young peoples attachment to technology
  • The quote explains that the children have become attached to the technology they’ve been spoiled with, and have become detached from their parents. This supports the idea that when parents spoil children can have serious consequences, like them becoming detached.
  • The quote explains that the children have become attached to the technology they’ve been spoiled with, and have become detached from their parents. This supports the idea that when parents spoil children can have serious consequences, like them becoming detached.
  •  “it had cost half again as much as the rest of the house. “But nothing’s too good for our children,” George had said.”
  • In conclusion:
  • #spoiledrotten
  • “We’ve never lifted a hand. They’re insufferable — let’s admit it. They come and go when they like; they treat us as if we were offspring. They’re spoiled”
  • “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.”
  • The conflict of “The Veldt” supports the theme the most. The root of the conflict is that the parents have spoiled both children with technology. The consequence of this is that the children lose any love and respect that they had for their parents.
