2. Human Ability VS Technology
Theme Statement:Too much technology can corrupt your mind
Famous Quote"“Too much love never spoils children. Children become spoiled when we substitute “presents” for presence” Anthony Withham
3. Happyife Home
The quote suggest that the Happylife Home have been affecting their way to be a human and doing something which supports the idea that without the use of technology in their house they wouldn’t be able to function or do things.
“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.”
“ Wish you were dead. We were, for a long while. Now we’re going to really start living. Instead of being handled and massaged, we’re going to live.”
The quote reveals the narrator's thoughts and emotion that they feel on how they been living throughout the years. He and She reactions supports the idea that they haven’t been living right for a few years and let technology control their lives
5. Happylife Home/ Nursery
“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?”
The quote suggest that because of Lydia and George “over loving” and use of not doing things on their own. Which supports the idea that Lydia and George take the ability to be a human then having everything giving to you or presented to you.
6. In Conulsion
In my evaluation, the conflict develops the theme the most.The author creates a disagreement with the characters between the idea if the happylife Home should be turn off or turn on.Its through this disagreement we realize that spoiling your kids can lead to terrible things.
