Have Fun With A.I.
Digital Wellness - Bits & Bytes
Did you know that Artificial Intelligence can create fun and engaging stories for your children, help you pick the perfect gift and also design weekly meal plans?
Do your children love stories? ChatGPT can help you create a customized bedtime story. Give the chatbot a detailed prompt that includes your child’s preferred storytelling style, any details you’d like to include and the situation that you want the story to address.
Here is a prompt for a hypothetical child who is terrified of learning to ride a bike. I asked it to involve some familiar characters:
Act as a children’s book writer, mimicking “Teen Titans.” My Kid is terrified of learning to ride a bike. Can the story help him overcome his fears?
The Chatbot created a story the child could connect to. Replace ‘my kid’ with the Childs name and it would be even more personalized.
This would be a great activity to do with your child. Have them create the plot, setting, point of view, characters and conflict or situation and see what the chatbot creates for you. A great way to learn Story Elements and have some fun together!

Another option is asking ChatGPT for a meal plan formatted in a printer-friendly chart that can be stuck on your refrigerator. Here is my prompt:
Act as a private chef. I have a family of four, me and my husband and two children aged 6 and 12. Plan meals for us for five days, including breakfast, snacks, lunch and dinner. We like Thai, Italian, and Japanese food. I like chicken and my husband prefers beef. We have no restrictions. Format in a chart.
