Famous quote relating to the theme “Any technological advance can be dangerous. Fire was dangerous from the start, and so (even more so) was speech - and both are still dangerous to this day - but human beings would not be human without them.”― Isaac Asimov
Theme Statement - I think that the theme of the story is that too much technology can corrupt your mind and if you spoil you spoil your kids it can bring negative effects.
2. The Use Of To Much Technology
Which quote about the setting supports the theme? When the kids figured out that the parents are shutting down the house for a couple of days and that was the turning point of the story.
How the setting helped support or develop the theme. ¨Their approach sensitized a switch somewhere and the nursery light flicked on when they came within ten feet of it.Similarly, behind them, in the halls, lights went on and off as they left them behind, with a soft automaticity. “Well,” said George Hadley. They stood on the thatched floor of the nursery. It was forty feet across by forty feet long and thirty feet high; it had cost half again as much as the rest of the house. “But nothing’s too good for our children,” George had said.¨
3. Setting- At The House/ Nursery
The main characters helped support the theme because it showed that the kids overruled the parents.
4. Main Characters- The Kids
“That sounds dreadful! Would I have to tie my own shoes instead of letting the shoe tier do it? And brush my own teeth and comb my hair and give myself a bath?”
“Will you shut off the house sometime soon?” “We’re considering it.” “I don’t think you’d better consider it any more, Father.” “I won’t have any threats from my son!” “Very well.” And Peter strolled off to the nursery.¨
5 - The parents are shutting down the house
After the kids figured out what the parents were thinking of doing they made a plan to go against their parents. (Kill the parents)
I think that it is the setting because the house is pretty much were everything began and the house did every little thing for them.
