I prefer an adult to answer with, "I don't know," rather than make something up that's wrong.

Unless it’s something I literally don’t know. Ask me to solve a calculus problem and that’s the only answer you’ll get.

That means I’ll need to wait for another decade to turn into an Adult.

Instead of saying I don't know, I would tell my kids to ask their Dad. (biggrin)

Just because they have a reason, doesn't mean they know it. We have a subconscious to deal with, which we have no idea what is going on there.

It's a matter of honesty. Some people think they have to know everything, as a job requirement. Engineers make jokes about people expecting them to know everything. Scientists don't make jokes, but they adopt the same principle: "If you can't blind them with brilliance, baffle them with bullsnot."
