Many Americans have pets or children in their household. What do you think would happen if you neglected these things? They would replace you with something else. In the story, "The Veldt", by Ray Bradbury, Mr. and Mrs. Hadley allow technology to replace them as the parents in their child 's lives, but, when they threaten to turn off the nursery, an extremely realistic virtual reality machine, However, then the Hadleys begin to hear familiar screams. However, because the children frequently visit the African Veldt, and watch lions eat things, they decide to turn off the nursery, and go on a vacation.
This story ¨The Veldt¨ shows disobedience in many ways. Disobedience means failure or refusal to obey rules or someone in authority. In the story ¨The Veldt¨ by Ray Bradbury the problem is that the kids are addicted to a nursery and how the nursery works is whatever the kids think happens in the nursery and the parents have no control over their children to stop going in the nursery. As the story goes on the parents decide that the house is too much for the family and want to move out. In the end the kids end up having no more parents do to the kids actions.
The lack of discipline that the parent’s show their kids cause them to lose their power and authority that parents possess. Since this power isn’t shown by George and Lydia their kids feel as if they have more power than their parents which leads to the downfall of the parents in the end. Wendy and Peter lost the respect for their parents because they didn’t discipline them. There are many more examples of
George and Lydia talk to their psychologist and he recommends that they should get out of the house because it had something wrong with it. George and Lydia wanted to go through with what the doctor said but when George locked the kids out of the nursery, they break in. George shuts the house off and the children freak out but he has no control over them so he lets them back in. The children had started planning to kill their parents when they started taking things away from them and one day they go through with it and the parents die.
the regret he has turns to outbursts of violence and anger, which he takes out onto his younger brother Wes. This lack of discipline and self control soon rubbed off onto wes as show in chapter 6. “Wes’s attendance became sporadic, and once his first child was born, he just stopped going” and also in “Wes would play videogames in the house and then head out to check on his drug operation...Wes would normally be out “trying to find a job”, as he would tell her” (110). From the text the author Wes Moore shares how these foolish actions will further limits his chances of getting a real job and being hired and how it was and easier way for Wes to get back into the drug game so soon after he is released from prison.

Susan 's mothering is annoying to the others. On their first night in the Professor 's house, Susan tries to tell Edmund that it is his bedtime, and Edmund immediately says she is trying to talk like mother: “… who are you to say when I 'm to go to bed? Go to bed yourself" (Lion 2). In many situations, Susan shows that she is the least courageous of the four children. When she finally does make it into Narnia and discovers that Mr. Tumnus has been arrested, she says: "I wonder if there 's any point in going on … I mean, it doesn 't seem particularly safe here and it looks as if it won 't be much fun either.
Early in the story, we see the kids getting everything they want beginning to develop when the parents walked to the nursery to see if there was something wrong with it. They saw that they were in Africa, surrounded by animals that looked very real. In the distance, there were lions eating a bloody animal. “( The nursery) had cost half again as much as the rest of the house. "But nothing 's too good for our children," George had said.” This quote shows that the parents bought the nursery because they want their kids to have all of the new technology.
This nursery oppresses the kids by holding their minds captive, making them addicted to it’s crystal walls, not wanting to do anything but sit in there all day long. It oppresses the parents by not letting them change what is being shown on it’s walls, which causes them to resent the parlor and what it has done to their kids. Another example of oppression in the communities found in short stories occurs in Shirley Jackson’s The Lottery. Every year the town conducts a mandatory lottery involving all it’s members. That is where the similarities to any other real-life lottery ends.
ADHD, also known as “Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder” Children with ADHD may be hyperactive and unable to control their impulse. Last year I got to know one of them, her name was Sunny. We didn’t have a pleasant start to know each other, all I knew was that she is a hard nut to crack. I could only hear an annoying kid bounding, and making sounds of sudden shrieking or sniveling that alerted me anytime. The first time we met was at the elevator, I remembered I was complaining to my mom about how the noisy neighbor was being the bang in my life.
Introduction and background of the issue Video games, use of computers and Wii games are extensively used by the youth of every nation. These new world accessories have become a menace for the health of children and this issue has been studied in many researches. Researches also highlighted that excessive use of video, computer and Wii games have detrimental effects on the health of children (RSK, 2014). However, Wii and Xbox games keep children pretty much in action but there are a lot of games which keep the children sitting for hours with poor posture.

The kids were running around screaming but the mother did not do anything to settle them besides yelling at them. She seemed very overwhelmed and not able to cope well with all the stress caused by Cedric’s actions. The mother had a defeated demeanor during the interview, as, if she has given up on Cedric. My next intervention move is to get Cedric into an environment that will allow him to focus in an individual counseling section. I will also want to have a family counseling session to address the stress that each family member is facing.
In the end of the story, the nursery and the family take a turn for the worse. The message that too much technology is not good for people is the main theme of the story. Both the children and the parents experience effects from using the machines to do everything for them. Also, the children are so spoiled from unlimited technology that they can’t live without
In this place we see that people created a "nursery", which is an advanced virtual reality program, that is able to create any environment that is in the owner 's mind. Furthermore, as the children are addicted to the nursery, the parents started to know that something isn’t right. Instead of successfully moving away to a new resident, the children killed their parents by visualising the scene of their parents being killed by the wild lions of Africa so much that they become real. In this text the author shows us how the technology can remove people’s sympathy towards each other. We can also imply from the children that they have lost the ability to love as they are more willing to spend their life in the nursery than living with their parents.
