Children are always never tired of asking questions and making parents befuddled.
My little brother used to do that!
Whenever he used to see beach, lake, river, pond or even a puddle he used to threaten my parents by asking “What is in the water?” And my father says clownfishes, snakes, tiger sharks, jellyfish,starfish, humpback whales, oysters, eels, algae, seal, seahorse, crabs, squids, turtles, tortoise, crocodiles,corals, octopus, dolphins, stingrays (even life of pie doesn’t carry more than this) and there my brother asks without any pity on my father ” THEN?”
And my father will end up saying Titanic and even dinosaurs!No one in my family would dare to show water in my brother’s eyes or they will be no more then lol!

The great tip is, you can raise the same question to your child back encouraging him to think more (and sometimes make him to forgot the question).
But what is she/he was appreciated by someone for not answering the question which in the books? It will be pleasing right?
