Good post, Regnard. I agree that machines aren’t yet ready to take care of our kids, but as you rightly point out, technology is helping to make easier the jobs of parents and caregivers. When designed and applied thoughtfully, assistive tech replaces or supplements only the parts of the job that parents aren’t so good at (e.g. time, memory, information access) and frees them up to do the good parts (e.g. warmth, nurturing, teaching).
