How have George and Lydia failed their children in "The Veldt" by Ray Bradbury?
In "The Veldt" by Ray Bradbury, George and Lydia have failed their children, Wendy and Peter, by allowing technology, specifically the Happylife Home and its interactive nursery, to replace them as parents. Their indulgence and negligence have resulted in the children becoming disrespectful, entitled, and dangerously obsessed with the nursery. Even when confronted with their children's escalating aggression and hostility, George and Lydia avoid taking responsibility and instead rely on outside experts. Their failure to provide love and discipline has led to a fatal outcome and seemingly irreversible damage to Wendy and Peter's character.
