According to a company called Childwise, a leading specialist in research with children and young people, Alexa (Amazon) and Siri (Apple) are making kids lose their manners.
Apparently because of these devices, kids are so used to 'yelling orders' at them that they forget they need to say things like "please" and "thank you" when they're dealing with real people. The researchers also added that it would be a good idea to add a politeness feature to the assistants so that kids have to treat them like real people.
The report warns that the diving line between digital 'person' and a real human being might not be clear for young ones.
So parents make sure you're teaching kids manners if they have an Alexa or Siri in their midst!
