My 6 year old has been learning about trees at school, and had questions for me. Needless to say, she now has the best understanding of data structures in her class, and I expect parents evening will be "interesting"

    Most people use trees to explain data structures, but it's incredible that you went the other way. I would have loved to hear how that went.

    Daughter: "Daddy, I have a question about how trees work."

    You: "Well darling, it's very similar to a concept that you have no understanding of, but you will."
