In the novel ‘Spies’, Mr. Hayward’s barbaric behaviour is like an 'ogre ' because it is preceded by a sense of rudeness, giving Keith a false sense of family.

This plain request implies that Mr. Hayward treats his house and family like military which restricts their freedom as soldiers and gives orders that must be fulfilled immediately or will face his ‘consequences’.

The theme of abandonment is prevalent throughout the entire short story “The Veldt” by Ray Bradbury. The theme of abandonment victimizes the children in the story by the parents figuratively abandoning them through the nursery. The parents, George and Lydia, leave their children to be cared for by a technologically advanced room. George and Lydia turn their backs on the children forcing the kids to create an unhealthy emotional attachment to the nursery which provides them with the happiness and comfort they need from another person.

The author of the story is very demeaning to women regarding their attitude and role in society, as a result, it becomes obvious that the author was male. Throughout the story, women were pictured to be bad causing little children who read this tale to question women entirely. The tone of the story changes from heartbroken for the little Brahmin boy to the distaste of females when gender roles are discussed. The author explains that the wife wanted to get rid of the Black Cow after she found out the Black Cow was nourishing her Brahmin stepson, she “begged [her husband] to sell the black cow, and said she would neither sleep nor eat until this was done.” (Tatar 169). This form of childlike behavior emphasizes that the author views women as nagging and annoying which functions as a forewarning of future female behavior that could be harmful.
George and Lydia start to see the house as a problem, but on the other hand, the children are so spoiled that they see no problem with the smart home.

Another example is when George finally completely turns off the house, the children and even the parents refer to it as “dead” and “been killed”. So, these are some horrible effects that the children and the parents experience from being surrounded by too much technology.
Miller and the Hadley’s greatly underestimated these children. The adults wanted to love and trust them but, in the Hadley’s case, it was a fatal choice.
