Dec. 27 (UPI) -- A New Jersey mother secretly filmed her 6-year-old son getting some illicit homework assistance from Amazon's Alexa virtual assistant.

The video shows the boy asking Alexa to solve a math problem -- five minus three -- and getting the answer from the Amazon device.


The mother said she was surprised to find her son cheating at math, which she said is his favorite subject.

She said Alexa will be switched off during future homework sessions.
