When people keep asking the same kind of questions over and over and you realize it's your fault for always helping them out so they don't learn how to debug on their own.

It's hard to do nothing but in a learning environment it's often the best.

    I always start with, "what I would do is put a breakpoint on line X and see what's calling it and what is happening. Try that and let me know if you're still having trouble." Seems to instill debugging as a natural go to.

    My solution: "here read the documentation I wrote, if you have any questions, read it again"
