Abstract

Ethical standpoints regarding robots for children are polarized, yet there is insufficient evidence to substantiate either position. This is compounded by the multiplicity of lenses through which child-robot interactions are investigated. This paper explores implications for translating knowledge from robotics to developmental psychology. The concept of a ‘care-receiving robot’ is a case in point, favorably reviewed here though the manner of its testing discloses the need for a conceptual framework that takes into robotics, processes of child development, sociocultural expectancies about optimal development, and factors affecting research priorities.
