The Veldt Family Quotes

How we cite our quotes: (Paragraph)

Quote #10

"You've let this room and this house replace you and your wife in your children's affections. This room is their mother and father, far more important in their lives than their real parents." (203)

David McClean gives the expert view on this situation: your family is messed up (he says to George Hadley) because you've let technology take over and now you have no job. We sure are lucky to have a psychologist here to explain everything to us so clearly. That's one bit of tech Bradbury seems to like: the know-it-all.
