It won't cure those sleepless nights, though!
Amazon's Alexa is designed to make your life easier; however, the tech giant may be going one level further by helping you raise your kids. At least, help with manners, that is.
The Echo Dot Kids Edition ($80) is designed to encourage kids to be polite, telling them to say "please" and "thank you" if they fail to do so during a voice command.
But by giving a polite response, they get one in return, such as Alexa saying, "Thank you for asking so nicely."
The addition comes after some people showed concern that the devices were encouraging rude behavior by not responding to their rudeness when children issued commands in an impolite way.
Some of the new features that differentiate the standard Echo Dot from the new kid-friendly version include a case to help protect it, a two-year warranty that includes repairs or replacement and a year of the FreeTime Unlimited Family Plan.
The included FreeTime subscription is what enables the new niceties (Those who already have an Echo Dot can download it here.) FreeTime includes a library of over 300 kids audio books and content designed for kids, even kid-friendly music playlists. In addition, parents have the ability to monitor their kids' activity, shut Alexa down for bedtime or similar reasons and filter content.
More groundbreakingly, the Echo Dot Kids Edition tells children to speak to an adult if they're distressed.
"This is a very positive development," research company ChildWise's research director, Simon Leggett, told the BBC.
"We had noticed that practically none of the children that we had talked to said they ever used the words 'please' or 'thank you' when talking to their devices, Legett said.
"Younger children will enjoy having the added interactivity, but older children may be less likely to use it as they will be more aware it's a robot at the other end."
Still, we're guessing the device has yet to find the solution for parents' sleepless nights.
