We already send our kids off to daycare, from there right to school, Stick iPod headphones in their ears, when they do get home we park them in front of the T.V. or let them spend unsupervised time on the internet.
Why not let a robot spend time with them, teach them, hug them, etc. I mean we’re like BUSY !
