I almost never answer my (almost) 5 year olds questions

Instead of giving her an answer, I reply with something along the lines of "what do you think". I believe this helps foster independent thinking, creativity and problem solving.

If her question requires a definite answer right away, of course I provide it. But like to give her the opportunity to work things out on her own.

What say you?
