Parents use technology to spoil their kids, the kids take advantage of the technology, and kill their parents with it.
Don't spoil your children.
sure sweetie, everything you want!
Mom, can I have everything?!
When parents spoil their children, it can have irreversible consequences.
A smart home/ the happy home
"They walk down their soundproofed happy-life home, which had cost them 30,000 dollars installed." "he turned to his father, 'oh I hate you...I wish you were dead"
"The Veldt" by Ray Bradbury
Giving our children everything they want makes them demanding and ungrateful, and they never learn how to be self controlled. This about this the next time you give into your screaming child. -anonymous
Man vs. Machine
The quote suggests that the home was full of advanced technology, the parents kept spoiling them, the kids don't take no for an answer (and you can see that better when they purposely killed their parents) and they take advantage of all of those things.
In my evaluation, setting develops theme the most. I think this because if the parents didn't spoil their children with the smart home and all of the technology, it would have never happened.
'Oh George, It can't hurt.'
This quote shows that George give into anything that the kids say. That supports the idea that the kids get anything they want all the time because they are spoiled. They don't take no for an answer.
'All right-all right, of they'll just shut up. One minute, mind you, the off forever.'
This quote suggests the children can mess with the machinery to change the setting or something like hacking it, and the parents don't know about it or don't know how to fix it.
"The lions look real don't they? I don't suppose there is any way that they could become real" "Not that I know" "Some flaw in the machinery, a tampering or something?"
