Five-year-olds are different to adults. The questions they pose as they try to make sense of the world around them demonstrate innocence, imagination, humour and an annoying determination to engage anyone who will listen to them in conversation. Children of this age want answers to everything, but they also want to make-believe. They implicitly trust adults to respond to their questions without overburdening them with too many harsh realities. Fortunately, the vast majority of children are loved by the parents and other adults in their lives, and this trust is not misplaced.
