As technology continues to advance, more people are incorporating it into their daily lives. This includes parents giving gadgets like iPads and iPhones to their children, often to aid in learning.

Siri, Apple's virtual assistant, is one such tool that helps users with queries and tasks. However, sometimes interactions with Siri can be frustrating, as seen in a recent viral video on social media.

In the video, a young child is shown interacting with Siri on an iPad. Initially, the child asks Siri about the time, to which Siri responds. The child reacts with surprise and asks for more information, but Siri struggles to provide a satisfactory answer.

The child then expresses disappointment, feeling that Siri is not as helpful as expected. The interaction continues with the child questioning how Siri knows her name, despite not being told.

Siri responds mysteriously, claiming to know everything. This exchange leads to the child feeling frustrated and asserting her authority over Siri, which Siri responds to neutrally.

This video highlights the potential challenges children may face when using such technology. While some viewers found the interaction amusing and endearing, others empathised with the child's frustration.

Parents may reconsider giving digital devices to their children after witnessing such interactions, recognising the potential for irritation and misunderstandings, believe experts.

The comments on the video reflect a range of reactions, from finding it cute and funny to expressing support for the child's assertiveness.
