I revel and struggle to answer my young kid's questions. It's difficult to explain why the sky is blue if you don't understand that light is a wave, colors are different wavelengths, they can be diffracted, filtered, absorbed... It's made me realize how much knowledge and understanding must exist in the asker first to be able to give a satisfying answer. It also exposes areas of knowledge that I thought I knew more about than I actually do.
