Daughter: “Dad, when I grow old I will buy for you a dishwasher. You make me wash dishes but it is child torture. Others

Daughter: “Dad, when I grow old I will buy for you a dishwasher. You make me wash dishes but it is child torture. Others eat, and I wash. The plates are many.”

Me: Where did you learn about this?

Daughter: I read it on the Internet. You said we research what we want to know.

Me: Learning skills is not torturing. It’s intelligence. And why not make a dishwasher. Why buy one?

Daughter: I will be an accountant and a shop owner.

This is 10 years old. This is a 4IR for real.  I think it is better to expose kids to the Internet than to remove it.
