    The speaker ends the poem on a note of optimism by saying that the day will come when the kids will eventually start reading books. The children will no longer seek the comforts of a TV but lounge in the fantasy world of books. Though this process might take time and the parents might get unhappy or angry remarks from their children but eventually they will “love you more for what you did.” Dahl upholds the virtues and pleasures of reading and being engrossed in book and at the same time critiques the invention of the television, very correctly known as the “idiot box.” He urges the parents to switch their kids from the TV to books as otherwise the young generation will be greatly harmed.
