The Shining is the name of the ability to read other people and sense emotions among other things, much like the abilities of a psychic. The word is learned by Danny from Dick, who also has the ability to shine. It reveals the inner secrets of the Torrance family by saying what has never been said.

As a result, Reuven Malter developed true friendship with Daniel Saunders via loyalty, sympathy, and trustworthiness. First of all, Reuven exhibited his strong and steady assistance even when derision tries to break the new bond. Actually, a schoolmate rudely commented on Danny, which incurred the protagonist’s hidden anger. The New Oxford American Dictionary defines loyalty as “the quality of being loyal to someone.” During recess at the yeshiva, a classmate brought up last week’s softball game, which obviously attracted Davey’s attention. He recollected the event: “It seemed silly to me, the way they kept talking about the game, they both sounded so childish, and I got a little angry when Davey Cantor started talking about ‘that snooty Danny Saunders,’ but I didn’t say anything” (149).
Parents show discipline and love to their children to help them grow as people. Ray Bradbury, the author of “The Veldt” shows this in his writing. Wendy and Peter are shown little love and discipline by their parents, which has serious consequences later in the story.

Bradbury’s symbolism of the powerful lions show the fight for power between the parents and kids.

Rather than judging Danny by his appearance or position, Reuven uses this opportunity to actually listen to him, as a result, he was able to learn many things about his new friend.

Another example from the story is when Danny has a recurring dream about a man coming to hurt him with a mallet (coincidence?). He dreamed of running down the halls as the “large dark shape, holding some sort of mallet, came for him, swinging it back and forth into the walls, saying ‘COME OUT HERE AND TAKE YOUR MEDICINE!’”. (King 291). This well supports the claim because the dark shape may be reminding Danny of his father, the night Jack got drunk and broke his arm for messing up his office. While his dad wasn’t a mallet wielding psychopath, the hotel may be trying to direct Danny’s dreams towards relating to that night in order to distance the Torrence's from each other.
