The climax is when the father allows the children to spend a little more time in the nursery before they leave and then the parents hear the scream of the children.

The Climax of the story is the highest point of action in a story, the point where all the rising action comes to a head.. in my opinon the climax of this story is when the parents are locked in the nursrey and finally recognize and understand why the screams seemed so familiar. After this moment the falling action and the story come together leading to the resolution that the children have killed their parents and feel no remorse. The house and the nursery have taken the place of their parents.
