So, what to do and tell your kids?
For kids who do not know anything about A.I., try to explain it in very simple terms.
Something like: “Artificial intelligence is like our brain, but it is made of the computer.
Just like you when you are a baby, you have to learn, adapt, and perform different things to understand everything.
Artificial intelligence is just like that, you have to guide it to use it.”
You may also want to give examples of when artificial intelligence is used, such as digital assistants, video games, and self-driving cars.
You need to have a comfortable space for your child to ask his or her curious questions. Encourage them to understand or learn about it by asking questions.
Don’t worry parents, if you do not know the answer you can explore an A.I. tool to know more about it.
By asking questions, your children can reduce any of the fears or confusion they may have about the technology.
Simple talk about pros and cons
It is also important for you to talk about artificial intelligence’s positive and negative sides, particularly on how the A.I. tools can impact them as a child, but, of course, in simple and understandable terms.
Set also reminders that real connections outside the Internet are still much more valuable compared to spending time on gadgets.
