“So much about parenting is about certainty, but as a parent I don’t have all the answers. None of us do. So I checked Google and they served me up certainty. Before this certainty, I would have consulted doctors, read more books. But now we turn to other sources. But ask yourself – whose certainty are they optimizing for? The very algorithms I go for are actually built to manipulate my choices by companies.”
Melanie relates a very personal TEDx talk on The Accidental Automation of Being a Mama, asking us all to maintain our self determination and critical thinking – and how this could be the greatest gift we can give our children.
