dc.description.abstractIn the last decades, the application of robots in variety of industries has remarkably been increased. Self-governing robots have been employed in various fields of human life, particularly in that of old and very young people. It is assumed that in the succeeding years, personal care robots will be in an intimate relation with human beings. But, what caring responsibilities will the future robots have before children at home? This is directly related to the kinds of robots as well as those aspects of getting old that are the matter of question. Among the topics that are germane to robot carers, Child-care is the least discussed one. In this article the duties of care robots in the life of youth is investigated. It studies the benefits of the application of robots in daily life along with the negative points, perils, and anxieties that rise from the application. In this article, we examine the benefits of the usage of robots in the child life. Besides, we will discuss the disadvantages, dangers and fears that are related to child-robot connections. In the end, we will recommend some useful points.en
