A mother in Scotland has busted her nine-year-old son using Alexa to get a little help on his math homework.  She was busy cooking dinner when she heard her Amazon Echo device talking to her son, Bryce while he was working on multiplication.    She went in to check and she caught him asking Alexa for the answers.

Bryce isn’t the first kid to use the virtual assistant for homework help and he won’t be the last, but he was completely oblivious to being caught in the act. So his mom grabbed her phone and made a video of him asking for answers. She posted the video on Facebook, where it’s gotten 2.3-million views and has been shared more than 34,000 times.
