Amazon has a new virtual assistant called "FreeTime". It has a "Magic Word" function that says "please" and "thank you". Amazon wants children to copy these two words when they ask the assistant questions. FreeTime will answer and then say: "Thank you for asking so nicely."
Many people think technology teaches children to be rude. Children forget to say "please" or "thank you". Not everyone is happy with this new technology. Some people think technology stops face-to-face conversation. They think parents should spend more time with children and teach them to say "please" and "thank you".
