They first created a nursery that is all technology and can only work with the children’s imagination. This then starts to cause brain damage to them when they use it for the wrong purposes in the nursery. His next personification example written into the story is, “the house is wife and mother now, and nursemaid.” This example paints a picture of how much technology is in the entire house not just the nursery. None of the members of the family do anything for themselves. The house does everything from cooking their meals to washing them in the bath or tucking them into bed.
In “The Veldt”, by Ray Bradbury, the Hadley family (especially the children), are spoiled, which leads to extremely negative consequences. The children are especially spoiled because of the part of the house they love and obsess over most, the nursery. This is not an ordinary nursery, though. Whatever you think of while you’re in the nursery comes to life. Because of this, whenever these spoiled brats don’t get what they want, they do more that just throw a major tantrum.
Seeing everyday activities as a chore. While other may assume the veldt is about how technology can control and ruin lives it's more about how the lack of family support and learning lessons can lead children to not understand morals and respect. The way they use the tech just is the median for the bad behavior. The effects of spoiling and not being around enough lead the children to disrespect their parents, even to threaten
In “The Veldt” by Ray Bradbury, I think that George and Lydia are at fault. The parents bought a smart home and spoiled the kids. They let them use the nursery whenever Peter and Wendy wanted to. when they took away the nursery they threw a fit and screamed and yelled. I think that George and Lydia are to blame.
A parent hovering is harmful to the child because it can cause a feeling of being overwhelmed by always having someone over their shoulder (“Here’s Why You Need to Stop Helicopter Parenting”). Helicopter parenting can cause anxiety, depression, a lack of confidence, unhappiness, academic problems, and many other difficulties in a child’s lives. Anxiety can come from always having a parent there to fix their problems whenever the child may want to fix the problem on their own. A child has to learn from their own mistakes, and whenever a parent is always there to mend their problems they have no
The characters of the stories demonstrate that there is no separation from the mechanical and have dependent inclinations that revolve around technology. Bradbury stresses the impact that the Happylife [sic] Home had on the Hadley’s through the demonstrative actions of the children and the parents. Lydia and George debate the children’s temper tantrums when they had turned off the nursery and the ending result where Lydia states, “You know how difficult Peter is about that. When I punished him a month ago by locking the nursery for even a few hours – the tantrum he threw! And Wendy too.
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
Transported into the future, Ray Bradbury paints a picture in the reader’s head of the Happy Life Home, filled with technology to fit everyday needs. A family, mom, dad, and two kids, start to slowly fall apart because of being surrounded with technology. In The Veldt, Bradbury uses multiple examples of author’s craft such as personification and tone or mood to help prove and point out a theme included in his story.

At the beginning, she seems to raise her son and daughter in an overly relaxed approach parenting. Her son Dylan was spoiled when his mom always do his homework and manage everything in his life without encouraging independence.

She always get a compliment from Amy even when she do something improperly so that brings Jane to be a mood,lack self-discipline and poor social skill person.
Actually, one of the biggest problems and is not taken into account is the fact that as technology gets to cover a large part of the lives of all people making itself indispensable, but at the same time causing multiples problems by overuse. This causes many problems especially within families, such as the lack of communication between parents and children, affecting the relations of the children with their friends.

The family division is one of the most important consequences because of technology, if is not handled with prudence. Finally suggestions and recommendations are given, so that the technology be as an aid and not a cause of major problems.
