Children often ask parents questions so as to create an open and safe place for themselves, called ' Home ' .
Its also a way for them to understand themselves sometimes, other people and the world they live in. Kate Winslet answered her son's question very lovingly & wisely. Seven year old Joe is a Blessed boy.
